Tre Stevens Charged for Attempted Murder of Ozen Rhaburn

Tre Stevens

A twenty-year-old man has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison until September twelfth after he was arraigned this morning for last Thursday’s attempted murder of Ozen Rhaburn. Rhaburn, a twenty-three-year-old resident of Hattieville, was targeted by a gunman at his home in the Farmer’s Site area of the village. He was reportedly confronted by an individual he knew; that person pulled out a gun and fired a barrage of bullets in his direction.  Rhaburn was hit multiple times and remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H.  Within minutes, Tre Stevens was detained as the suspect and was charged over the weekend.  Today, he appeared before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson for attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm. No plea was taken and Stevens was remanded. Police said today that they cannot confirm that the shooting of Rhaburn is linked to the murder of Carlton Wade, which occurred one week earlier, but they are looking at all angles. Here’s Commander Alejandro Cowo of the Crimes Investigation Branch in Belize City.

“Is it a fact that you all had taken Mister Ozen Rhaburn into custody on Tuesday night because you heard that persons out there wanted to do him harm?”
