This morning in the courtroom of Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer, an eighteen-year-old fisherman of Belize City was arraigned for the murder of fireman Jiovanni Lennan.  Appearing before the lower court judge unrepresented, Denver Bevans, who alleges that the arresting officers fractured his mandible, was read two charges.
