Accused Murderers Windell Thurton & Filadelfio Arriaza Get Bail

Two men who are awaiting trial for separate murders were lucky to get bail today when they appeared before Supreme Court Judge, Justice Colin Williams to present their applications. Windell Thurton, who is charged for the January 2016 murder of Ian Blair at a home on Simon Lamb Street in Belize City, was today offered bail of twenty-five thousand dollars on the conditions that he is not to interfere with any of the prosecution’s witnesses, or be charged with an indictable offense before his trial ends, or leave the country without the permission of a Judge of the Supreme Court.  Meanwhile, shopkeeper, Filadelfio Arriaza also got bail of twenty-five thousand dollars while he awaits his trial for murder.   He is accused of beating thirty-six year-old Michael Pagett in front of a bar in Benque Viejo del Carmen in July of 2016. Pagett suffered severe wounds to his face and head and later died at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Arriaza must adhere to the same conditions as Thurton or he will lose the freedom he enjoys while he awaits his trial.
