Hattieville Woman is Behind Bars for Maiming Another

Gertrude Mejia

A young domestic from Hattieville, Gertrude Mejia, is on remand at the Belize Central Prison for the offense of maim.  Allegations are that on October twelfth, 2019, she intentionally and unlawfully caused a maim to Virginia Logan in Hattieville.  Mejia appeared before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson and was represented by attorney Norman Rodriguez. There was no objection to bail, which was granted in the sum of six thousand dollars plus one surety of the same amount. But Mejia was unable to meet bail so she has been behind bars since Wednesday.  Logan told police that she was walking in the village and she was followed by a group of women. Among them was Mejia, who she claims, swung a machete that caught her on the hand.   Logan sustained chop wounds to her fingers which were almost severed and is likely to impede her movements.
