Student Charged for Attempted Murder

Musa Smith

A twenty year old Belize City student has been charged for the December twenty-first attempted murder of twenty-eight year old Tyron Scott of Unity Street, who was stabbed twice to the back area on Kraal Road, Belize City. This morning, Musa Smith was arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court and read three indictable offenses including attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm upon Scott. Smith, who was unrepresented, appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano. Due to the nature of the allegations, he was not offered bail and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until February twenty-seventh, 2015.  Scott was stabbed to the back and shoulder at his house. He was found by the police lying on the ground under his house and was transported to the K.H.M.H. by BERT Personnel. Initially, he did not disclose who inflicted the stab wounds, but on release from the hospital, Scott reported that he went to take some school items to Smith, but that encounter led to a confrontation in which he was stabbed with a knife.  According to Scott, he has known Smith for a year.

    Very stupid children destroying each other. Fi what? Most likely over some foolish misunderstanding. Mad at the world, mad at themselves and full of self hatred.
