Severe Case of Bed Sore for “Robbery”

Tanisha Plunkett

In describing Welch’s situation, his common-law wife explained that she reached out to Kolbe C.E.O. Virgilio Murillo after having received a medical certificate from a doctor at the K.H.M.H.   When she reportedly turned to the court for consideration of the matter she was referred to Murillo at the Belize Central Prison.  She continued by telling us that the condition is fairly recent.
