Milton Darinel Maza charged with murders of Richard and Maria Stuart

Milton Darinel MAza

There is a major break in the double murder of attorney Richard Stuart and his wife, Maria Stuart, a chartered accountant. They were viciously stabbed to death at around midnight on Saturday as they arrived home from a dinner. According to our sources, a former employee made a jailhouse confession. As we reported Tuesday night, he is twenty-four year old Nixon Alexander Maza who also goes by the name of Milton Darinel Maza. He was hauled off to magistrate’s court in front of Dorothy Flowers late this afternoon and was arraigned for the double murder.  Maza, a Guatemalan, also claims to be a naturalized Belizean.  While being read the first murder charge for Maria Fernandez Stuart, Maza told the magistrate that she was his boss and she assisted him to get his ‘papers’. Maza was not shy to speak and told the magistrate that he went to school in Melchor, Guatemala and also in Blackman Eddy Village in Belize. He said he lived in Santa Elena and works in St. Matthew’s Village where he does agricultural work for a living.

One observer at court noted that he limped and kept holding the right side of his ribcage when he exited the police vehicle.  In addition to a small tattoo between his thumb and his index finger on his left hand, our court reporter noted that he looked disheveled.  Maza seemed to have injures to his toe, wrist, and neck.  He was allowed a translator because he spoke mainly Spanish.  No plea was taken from him because it is an indictable offense.  The case was adjourned until November twenty third. Maza was picked up at Saint Matthews Village where the Toyota Scion, belonging to the Stuarts was found. That is the same village in which another vehicle belonging to the Stuarts was found after it was stolen about a month ago.

    If it’s not aliens, it’s colored people giving this country a bad name.”

    “Colored?” The Man, this is not about race, seems you are very racist, you can go rot in hell too….
