Efrain Martinez is Committed to Stand Trial for Murder

Efrain Martinez

Turning to the courts…Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser committed Salvadoran national Efrain Martinez to stand trial for the January 2019 murder of Guatemalan national Elmer Salazar. The fifty-four-year-old former employee of Belize Marine and Mooring Services will appear in the January 2020 session of the Supreme Court. After a preliminary inquiry, Chief Magistrate Fraser determined that there was sufficient evidence to make a prima facie case against him. According to police reports, Salazar had an altercation with several employees at Belize Marine and Mooring Services. It was during the altercation that Martinez allegedly chopped Salazar multiple times to the body. He died while receiving treatment at the K.H.M.H.
