Troy Banner is Charged Again for Seriously Injuring His Newborn Child

Troy Banner

Grievous harm, cruelty to a child and wounding – those are the charges that have been brought against thirty-one-year-old Troy Banner when he appeared in the magistrate’s court in Belmopan earlier today.  As we reported on Monday, the Camalote resident is once again being accused of seriously injuring a newborn baby.  In this most recent incident, the injuries were inflicted upon a baby, only fifteen days old.  The neonate, we are told, has suffered a broken arm, fractured shoulder, and abrasions to the face and back.  The baby was admitted to ward at the Western Regional Hospital over the weekend and was later transferred to the KHMH for further treatment.  On Monday, Assistant Superintendent of Police Alfonso Aban told the media that an investigation is underway into this latest incident.  In June 2019, another of Banner’s children lost his life after essentially being beaten to death.  In that case, he was charged for manslaughter.  There has been another allegation made against him by the mother of his eldest child.  It is an unthinkable act being perpetrated on a newborn.  News Five has reached out to members of Banner’s family but they have decline comment.  We will continue to follow this story.
