Jail, no bail for ex accused of assaulting former partner

Keith Middleton

Belize City resident, Keith Middleton, the ex- boyfriend of a woman attacked with a screw driver, is spending his first night on lock down at the Belize Central Prison after he was denied bail this morning for two criminal offenses. Middleton appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith for the offenses of aggravated assault with a screw driver and wounding upon ex-girlfriend, Muteeshe Smith. The prosecutor, Inspector Egbert Castillo, heavily objected to bail since the victim was brutally attacked and there is a possibility that Middleton could inflict further injuries to her.  Smith claims that she was walking on a street in the city when she met Middleton.  The two got into an altercation during which he pulled out a screwdriver and attacked her.  According to Smith, she sustained a cut wound to the eye and abrasions to her forehead and abdomen. Middleton is due back in court in August.
