Murder charge after she drove over her baby’s daddy

Calaney Flowers

This afternoon, a twenty-five year mother and bank proof teller, was charged with murder and attempted murder. Calaney Flowers is accused of slamming her car into the father of her child Lyndon Morrison who was riding his motorbike along with his pregnant girlfriend Sochyl Sosa. Morrison succumbed two hours later but Sosa lived to tell the story. From her hospital bed today Sosa said that just prior to the incident on Freetown Road; there was an encounter with Flowers. Freelance reporter Duane Moody has that story.

Twenty-five year old proof teller of the Atlantic Bank Limited, Calaney Flowers evaded media cameras today covering her face with this green rag when she was taken for arraignment in court.  Flowers is accused of the murder of her ex-boyfriend and baby’s father, twenty-nine year old Lyndon Morrison and the attempted murder of twenty-five year old Sochyl Sosa. On Tuesday night, Flowers reportedly slammed her Saturn car into the couple who was riding on a red motorcycle. Morrison died two hours later and Sosa sustained a broken leg, abrasions on both arms and a large cut wound to the head.

 

Voice of: Sochyl Sosa, Victim

“I’m getting better, just pain. My leg broken.”

 

Marion Ali

“And your head injury; it will recover fully?”

 

Voice of: Sochyl Sosa

“Yeah, I done get stitch already.”

 

While in her bed in the surgical ward of the K.H.M.H., Sosa recounted off-camera the incident. She says they had an encounter with Flowers on Mahogany Street moments before the fatal accident.

 

Voice of: Sochyl Sosa

Sochyl Sosa

“We met by a shop, she stop and she ask me questions: if the rings fit me. I tell ahn what ring? I don’t know about no ring. Ih call, ih say Mister Morrison come here. She said, you noh tell Sasha bout the ring. He said what ring? He noh know about nothing bout no ring. Then they start talk about the baby. She said get this now, you wah stop see your baby and this that. He said, well you can’t stop me from seeing my baby. The gial said, you are just a sperm donor; that’s all. Well we will see each other in court. The she left. But none of us were quarrelling or fight because we done say she noh di quarrel, I noh di quarrel, he noh di quarrel. So she just left.  When we were coming by the roundabout, we saw her vehicle; she followed us and she get speed and then she bang into us. After that I can’t remember anything because I fell off the cycle.  We had to stop by the bump because if we fly by the bump, we still mi wah have wah accident. So we stop, but when we stop she crash into us then we fly off. I mi frighten. I tell he stop; this gial wah kill wi, please stop. Ih say baby I can’t stop, I ina speed right now. So we had to stop because of the bump. So them when she hit us everything happen.”

 

Flowers then reportedly went to Morrison’s home and told the family what she did. On Wednesday, an eyewitness said that after the red car hit the motorcycle, it sped off in the direction of Mahogany Street. Flowers was later arrested.

 

Voice of: Eyewitness [File: August 29th, 2012]

“I saw this motorcycle coming on Freetown Road by Atlantic Bank and all I notice that wah vehicle came from behind and just knock the motorcycle. I saw this guy fly off the motorcycle and I see this young lady too that was riding behind the man on the motorcycle, she fly up high ina the sky too.”

 

Duane Moody

“Above the fence noh?”

 

Voice of: Eyewitness

“Yeah it’s like almost the height of the fence by Central Assembly Church. To my experience it is first time I see wah incident like that happening. He had on his helmet that really protected his head but at the same time, the helmet got crushed, totally crushed. Only the sponge that the helmet inside have protected his face. And right where he was lying down, a lot of blood too.”

 

Flowers and Morrison have an eleven month old baby, but they’re estranged; according to Sosa who says that she and Morrison have been involved for the past five months. In fact the accident has revealed that she was pregnant, presumably with their child. Sosa says there was a fight between her and Flowers earlier this year after she found about her relationship with Morrison.

 

Lyndon Morrison

Voice of: Sochyl Sosa

“I had a fight before with her. She does always call me [bleep] and all kind of names around his friends. I know him for two years and we got serious for five months now.”

 

Marion Ali

“Word on the street is that she is the common-law-wife who shares a child with him and you were the “girl on the side.” How do you respond?”

 

Voice of: Sochyl Sosa

“Well they have a baby together, yes I know that. But since me and he get together, he help ahn with the baby, but he tell me he noh deh with she, he deh with me. Everybody knows that: his mom, sister, everybody know that, friends everybody.”

 

The incident is devastating to Sosa because approximately one year and five months ago, back in March of 2011, Sosa was the passenger in a car, which flipped killing her then boyfriend, Robert Lionel. She received head and body injuries. Duane Moody reporting for News Five.

 

Flowers is being represented by Attorney Ellis Arnold.

    This little home recker should not even try to look like a victim. She knows that she took him away from a home with his child and Flowers. Of course, she is not the only one to blame. A relationship changes when a baby is born but instead of staying home and working it out, Mr. Morrison decided to move on to the chick on the side. Rest in Peace.
    I am sorry that Flowers could not control her emotions. All women that have been cheated on know how hard it is to control yourself when you just want to tear them apart.

  2. LA says:

    She is crazzzyy……!

  3. Al says:

    This is such a tragic situation. Belize men have a problem with fidelity and the women just lay down and have babies for these boys. Please we need to teach morality in the schools, we as a country have totally lost sense of right and wrong. Three familes are ruined by this senseless act. Mother teach your boys to respect women and not just use them as a sex toy. Mothers teach your daughters to respect themselves and to make these boys respect them. Please start to restore morality back to the country.

  4. belizean beauty says:

    this is very tragic…a child left without parents!
    However…dead man tells no tales and Calaney can’t tell hers either!
    Sosa, can lie to the news reporter, because they don’t know any better! you guys weren’t together…you were having an affair with Him. (we all know this). If that wasn’t bad enough you were being very disrespectful, and tormented her best you could!
    when they went to take these pictures off his facebook, guess they chose
    not to use the recent family pictures, because of the baby.

    By no means does this make what Calaney did right nor does it justify.

    MEN..you guys need to seriously do better as men! STOP DISRESPECTING THE WOMEN YOU CLAIM TO LOVE!
    WOMEN…start making better choices in the men you choose to have a family with, because when kids are involved its never about you anymore nor is it a joke. Remember if you know he is a relationship when you met him, EXPECT nothing less than lies, whats going to make him anymore truthfull to you than the one he is with!! #startsettingyourstandardshigher!!!

    with that’s said! I want to express my condolences to both families and child! praying that God will see you guys through this difficult time!

  5. Truth says:

    As much as its a tragedy its also a big ignorance for Ms. Sosa since she was aware that Morrison was a family man and due to their indiscretion caused friction thus causing a split in the family.. NO Woman likes to be cheated on, Yet there are some that are determined to split a family.

    This is just 1 result of the endless possibilities. RESPECT A FAMILY, this goes for both men and woman.

  6. angel stevens says:

    can feel the young lady pain(flowers) at that time i would have done the same thing women need to back off especially if some one is in a relation ship or married ,hope she have a good lawyer ,am glad tge other woman is a live for one reason she remember you honey you should have broken her arms ,and make sure thosr legs were tottally broken beyond repair.please no haters support ms flowers. Thumbs up to you girl yeees

  7. WESTERNMERMAID says:

    THIS IS INDEED AND SAD SITUATION, BUT THE GENTLEMAN SHOULD HAVE TAKEN HIS RESPONSIBILITY SERIOUS, HE WAS THE FATHER OF THE CHILD, MOST LIKELY HE LOVED THE MOTHER, SO WHY HE CHEATED??? HE HURT HIS BABY MOTHER REALLY BAD, I MEAN, WOMEN HATE WHEN THEY HAVE TO SHARE THEIR MAN WITH ANOTHER WOMAN, COMMON MEIN, I AM NOT CONDONING THE CHILD’S MOTHER ACTION, BUT SHE WAS HURTING, THE BABY IS ONLY ELEVEN MONTHS, WOW!!!!

    TO MISS SOSA, WELL SHE SOUND LIKE IF SHE IS THE XHTABIA, SECOND MAN IN HER TO DIE IN ACCIDENT WITH SHE PRESENT HMMM, I DON’T THINK ANOTHER MAN WILL WANT TO RISK THEIR LIVES WITH HER, THIS IS A GOOD LESSON TO HER, LEAVE THE MEN ALONE WHO HAVE A FAMILY.

    WELL TO CALANEY, WELL SHE SHOULD HAVE THINK TWICE BEFORE SHE DID THAT, SHE SHOULD HAVE THINK ABOUT THE BABY, BECAUSE NOW THE POOR CHILD IS WITHOUT A MOM AND DAD.

    SAD REALLY SAD, JEALOUSY, UNFAITHFULNESS, JOE GRINDING, SEX AND SEX AND SEX THE WRONG WAY THIS IS THE CONSEQUENCES.

  8. NYC says:

    I feel bad for miss Flowers …I could only imagen the pain she felt seen her man with this chick ….I was in the same situation years ago and thank God I didn’t do anything crazy…Men need to stop playing with female feelings…and to the Sosa girl she look like a home wrecker and I hope she learn her lesson…

  9. Elgin Martinez says:

    It’s such a sad situation,my sympathy goes to both families.Let’s hope other people will learn from this situation.

  10. belizean beauty says:

    its hard to sympathize with you sosa, because of women like you men feel they don’t need to respect women…there is always someone like you..TRASHY, that they can release on! If it was my husband I would have given you a serious tearing, something your mom should have done, maybe you would have learned to be more respectful to yourself and other women!

  11. Western Girl says:

    Bottom Line Ms. Flowers should have loved herself enough to end the relationship, she knows he wanted someone else. She should have thought about her child first. She was being selfish. . Ms. Sosa is not the evil doer here. LOVE YOURSELF WOMEN. When you realize your men wants someonelse just back away, BE STRONG. Everything happens for a reason, cut your losses and move on. And in the end the poor child is left without parents. JUST STUPID!

  12. Mel Staine says:

    its not her fault alone..it takes two to tango. and im sure she didnt hold a gun to his head and made him leave Calaney. come on now… we have all either been on either side… either the main chick or the chick on the side. so stop all the name calling because while you are pointing one finger at Sochyl.. 4 more are pointing back at you… and NO i dont know her.. but who are any of you to condemn n judge…. NO WOMAN CAN TAKE NO MAN AWAY… IF D MAN WA GO NO WOMAN CUD MEK E STAy.. so in condemning Sochyl.. unu d condemn Lyndon to

  13. nurses says:

    To build a relationship it takes a lot of effort ,these girls of today ;even though the they know the man have a partner they don’t give a dam.We as woman out here support miss Flowers all THE WAY.All though it is wrong to take a person life i am so sorry she reach this point in her life.I wish she could have talk to someone about her problems cause believe me when you talk out your problems you feel much better.SIGN WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN THERE.

  14. Nina says:

    Its sad to see such beautiful lives ruined. I understand what Ms. Flowers was going through, I´ve been there and the feeling of hurt and betrayal that takes over drives you to point that you dont think about the consequences of our actions. It only takes seconds for tragedy to unfold. Ms. Flowers is a beautiful young lady and Ms. Sosa is a trashy version of her…. Hope Ms. Sosa learns her lesson and not try to break up anymore homes. B**** like Ms. Sosa there are many but keep in mind that not all women take cheating lightly, never underestimate a woman!! Think twice before you decide to fool around with someone elses husband.

  15. angel says:

    What a sad situation indeed! especially for the little baby. Ms. Flowers had probably reached a breaking point and was reacting out of pure emotions and hurt. Remember it takes two. Nobody knows what was going on in that relationship (Flowers/Morrison) maybe he was playing both of them in telling Sosa that he was not with Calaney. Now Sosa and Calaney is without a man!
    WHAT A TRAGEDY!!!!

  16. Harvest says:

    All you people are ignorant! How can you post comments like that? A human being was killed and another got severely injured. Regardless of the situation of these people, Ms. Sosa and Morrison did not deserve that. This is a serious Crime and Ms. Flowers will pay for it. She is no angel.

  17. Jewel says:

    Sad situation but why would Ms. Flowers go fighting for a man that obviously doesn’t love her? She should have just moved on….guess he did have a choice who to be with…..

  18. kiamichelle says:

    Miss Sosa’s boyfriend died 17 months ago yet she was dating Morrison for 2 years now and got serious about 5 months ago…no morals. They were both players, so sad the mother wasnt strong enough to walk away. Crime of passion.

  19. deedee says:

    As the saying goes………A MAN CHEATS BECAUSE THERE IS A B**** OUT THERE WHO WILL CHEAT WITH HIM. 2 men have already died with this sosa chick in their lives & she’s only 25yrs, girl you need to slow down, perhaps even stop with whatever your doing. Sosa says she new the guy for like 2 years now but they only got serious 5-6 months ago………..right. With all this crazy madness a child is now without both mom & dad, so sad. As for Calaney I think most people can understand your pain as it relates to being cheated on or knowing your man has a “side chick”, but the actions that was taken to express your anger or displeasure was so wrong & not the way to go. U lose yu freedom ova wah man weh mi d joe grind pa u, fi all we know he probably had other females apart from the side chick sosa. Its not worth losing your life or freedom over these lame, tired @ss men we have here, keep your head up girl. AS FOR SOSA, AS STATED EARLIER 2 MEN HAVE ALREADY DIED WHILE WITH U, I THINK THE LORD IS TRYING TO SAY SOMETHING TO U………………

  20. kiamichelle says:

    Miss Sosa’s boyfriend died 17 months ago, and she starterd dating morrison 2 years ago and got serious 5 months ago. So miss Sosa and Mr Morrison was cheating on their better half. No Morals. Judging from Morrisons facebook I would say he was well involved with the mother of his child dont see any pics of sosa there.

  21. alley cat says:

    Unfortunately Sosa will be the face of the other woman in the eyes of all Belizean women who have been cheated on. Sounds like the guy moved on, it happens all the time, people get into relationships and get out for whatever reason. She had no right to kill the man her actions are indefensible. Again, we need to raise our kids to have self-esteem and not measure their worth based on how much someone else loves or what they think of them. If the tables were turned and a man killed his ex girlfriend and attempted to kill the new lover would the argument be the same? Would anyone really say I would do the same thing?

  22. granduncle benjaminz says:

    I love this page. even when the GIAL kill wah man, and try kill another woman. Guess whose fault it is? Everybody blame the man. I mean every woman blame the man still. When a woman cheat on a man, he no kill nobody. but if he did, it would be his fault, and his responsibility.

    this is sexist

  23. Carrie123 says:

    What an unfortunate chain of events. Men and “sweethearts” take note of this situation. Maybe next time you will think twice before pi$$ing off the wife. Condolences to the Morrison family and to the Flowers family. As for Sochyl Sosa remember that you reap what you sow.

  24. aura says:

    I do not care what anyone want to say. a life is a life. if it was my brother she did that to. I would have her head on a plate. People move on in life if they want to. also I heard she was very possesive, and crazy. Read krem news and then you can think before you write.

  25. Brooklyn says:

    It’s a very sad situation alright. I feel very sorry for the young lady Ms. flowers. Was in that same situation before and it wasn’t a good feeling,but she should have thought of the child. I guess anger got the best of her. To all the young ladies out there or all women for that matter learn to move on and try to take the negatives in your life and make them possitives. remember life goes on and if a man can be so easily stolen from you he wasn’t worth having in the first place, also remember that what goes around comes around. Someone will steal him from her too. Most men just don’t know how to commit to one woman. On the same note hope Ms. sosa recover and think very hard about what got her in this predicament , and try not to make the same mistake again. She might not be so lucky to survive the next time around.

  26. She Who Feels it Knows! says:

    My sympathies to all the families injured over this. I strongly believe is justice and that we are responsible for our actions. Calaney I could never commend you for taking a life much less the life of your child’s father and deprive your baby of that relationship. I will not cast blame on Sochyl either. Women to women: This shit in our country have got to stop! Both woman are innocent victims regardless of what the media or biased witnesses have to say. Apparently, both women have been lied to and strung along. The intricacies of this anomaly John public will never understand until they find themselves in it. I know because I have walked that road! Honest to God I met a certain young man, seem legit and we ended up in what I thought was a serous relationship, meeting my parents, at family functions etc never missed a beat apart from some unanswered cell phone calls here and there. It appears that the very same things he was doing for me he was doing for some other girl. She got pregnant, he confessed, you know did everything to make me feel like he really f***** up and wanted me there. So I chose to stick to him and work it out! Guess what me n baby mama was playing the same mouth organ! The moral of the story? Know your facts before you cast judgment, it is our custom here that even our families encourage this promiscuous behavior and this is the end result. Looking at this all I could have thought was thank the lord my situation resolved itself because I could have been the other girl innocently think about that!

  27. Yaw says:

    The morale of this story… never, ever, ever, ride a motorcycle!

  28. babs says:

    she did not even shed a tear. She sound pretty cold-hearted to me. I think she’s trash. And I think the guy messed up his baby-ma by cheating on her and lying to her,

  29. moses says:

    Shaekspeare couldn’t write a targedy like this. It was only a matter of time before somethig like this happen in Belize. Consider the lot a sweetheart them. At all levels high and low man di have fowl kub. Its a Belizean thing. Especially since the age of consent is 16, the youg gial dem no K how old di man as long as ih gat moni. When I mi young and foolish I had 3 gial jak up with baby same time. I no know how I noh get kill. I know now I mi wrong and I hope young bwai them lawn a lesson from this tragedy. Punani da no trophy. Respect.

  30. hating females says:

    Most people comment here is based on the fact that this guy cheated and this crazy tramp killing justified…Belizean are so ignorant. put your foot in the mother shoe by no means should a person life be taken for cheating. Most of these comment are from hating @$$ broken heart-ed females who celebrate the idea that another hurting female can kill and get away with it… now watch this happen again… cause monkey see monkey do,,,, for all i know that !@#$% got it coming… either now or later but she wont get away with it… JUSTICE will be served

  31. voice of reason says:

    wow, a lot of these comments are ignorant as the meaning can get………First off, you cannot take something that doesnt belong to you, and neither can u keep something you dont have…….
    second, you cannot cheat on soemone your not with,,,,that is very clear they were not together,,, didnt he take a police report out on flowers on july 24, for damage to property. some women just dont know when its time to move on. i will never fight over a man muchless kill for one. that is insane, she needs medication, i think she is dillutional and wanted more and he had already moved on. he still respected her as his child mother, an she secretly was hoping they would get bck together, when she founf out sosa was pregnant, an she now see there was not chance to get bck with him, she went off the deep end……..I dont blame sosa, she is not a homerecker, boss was married to flowers becasue she is crazy an derainged. truth be told…..who chops some bike with an ax????? not a normal person,,,,,,,and to flowers family,,,,stop makeing excuses an try to justify what she did,,,,,casue its wrong wrong wrong……she had no right to that boys life…………

  32. redz says:

    From the time Flowers meet her baby daddy and another girl together and she follow them around its premeditated murder. She had ample opportunity fi go home to her baby and left them alone. I feel sorry fi Sosa caz its not funny to have 2 loves taken from your life in such a short span of time. damn.

  33. point of interest says:

    It can be very challenging for a woman to be experiencing infidelity, esp. after recently giving birth. Emotion runs high, baby blues, I know it can be a terrible thing to have a good outlook on your family’s future, then some outside girl comes and rips that away. I personally believe that Ms. Flowers act was not acceptable, but reasonable, coming to be provoked extremely. Don’t mess with other people’s man, esp don’t be flaunting in their man’s car and esp NINJA BIKE! Sosa you crossed the line….

    That was not your place, that was all for Calaney and she loved him till DEATH I’m so sorry to sound harsh but it’s true. Families out here are struggling to stay together, yes the guy goes and look at other women , but if women out there respect families and other woman’s man, they would back off, and eventually the man gets steered right back in the right direction of his Wife/Commonlaw.

    For all side woman out there….this could have been you…back off people’s family, they want to be happy together.

  34. voice of reason says:

    pOINT OF INTEREST, YOU ARE AS DILUSIONAL AS mS, FLOWERS……LAST TIME I CHECK U HAD TO BE LIVING TOGETHER TO BE “COMMON lAW”…………….aN SHE WENT TO HIS HOUSE WHERE HE LIVE AN CHOP HIS BIKE AND FLATTEN HIS TIRE…….SO GET YOUR FACTS TOGETHER………………AN EVENTUALLY HE GETS STEERED BACK??? LMAF…..THATS THE MOST LAUGHABLE, YET DUMMEST THING IVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE……….bLONDES GOT NOTHING ON YOU…………..uR HILARIOUS

  35. Isa says:

    I was cheated on as well planning wedding at 8 a.m and 1 hr later was told the relationship was not working out. Moved out few min after and by Mid day mrs. pan di side was in the place i called home a few hrs ago.
    That didnt cause me to kill him or her my mentallity is that what goes around comes around and God is watching down on what we do.
    Mrs. Flowers failed to lover her self and her baby over a man and thats sad
    Mrs. Sosa is a great person i know her never talked to her but i know she WILL be a GREAT mom for her baby. Dont worry about ppl they will fill thier mouths to talk Crop they dont know.
    Only You and Mr. Morrison knew what you two had and how your relationship was.
    Only God should Judge not us human beings although its difficult for most of us to keep the hold in our face shut and open it only for positive things.
