Henry Palma Remanded for the Attempted Murder of His Mother

Henry Palma

Henry Palma is being accused of attempting to kill his own mother, Rosalie Palma, during an incident on Saturday at the Pickstock Hutment area in Belize City.  This afternoon, the twenty-one-year-old was handcuffed and taken to the courtroom of Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser. Henry is believed to be suffering from a mental health condition and an evaluation will be undertaken at his next court appearance.  The Chief Magistrate noted that prior to his arrest; Henry was living on the streets, which could have contributed to the way he acted in court as well as his appearance. He babbled and gave strange answers to questions, but claimed he never interfered or attempted to kill his mother.  The Chief Magistrate also concluded that Henry did not understand the court proceedings and when he was told he will be remanded to jail, he said, (Quote) “Let’s go to hell.” (Unquote) It continued downhill and he was remanded to prison until September eighteenth, 2019.
