Belize City Man on Remand for Sexual Abuse

Burley Kenyon Murphy

Tonight, a Belize City man is on remand at the Belize Central Prison for allegedly sexually abusing a minor between November 2015 and May 2016. Twenty-seven-year old Burley Kenyon Murphy, an unemployed, was arraigned this morning in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court and slapped with five counts of unlawful sexual intercourse upon a fifteen-year old girl.  Murphy asked for permission to speak, saying that he was set-up and that the police has avoided listening to his side of the story. The magistrate advised him not say anything and to retain the assistance of an attorney. But he managed to say that his girlfriend is expecting to give birth. The minor is claiming that there was unlawful sex five times in the past with Murphy and when medically examined last Thursday, it was confirmed that she is carnally known. Murphy was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until August thirty-first, 2016.
