2 men charged for stabbing George Carr Jr. in the neck and jaw

Leo Palacio Jr.

George Carr Junior brought in the New Year recovering from stab wounds after he was attacked in the wee hours of December thirty-first. After eleven days of police investigations, two men were charged this morning with Attempted Murder, Grievous Harm and Use of Deadly Means of Harm. They are twenty-four year olds Leo Palacio Junior and Glenford Miller Junior. No plea was taken when the two appeared in court because the case will go to a preliminary inquiry and if there is enough evidence, the men will stand trial at the Supreme Court.

Glenford Miller Jr.

They were both remanded to the Belize Central Prison until their case some up in February. According to Carr, he was attacked by the two accused men near the Cemetery Road roundabout. Police got the call at around three a.m. that Carr had been stabbed to neck and jaw. The following day, a relative who was with the victim when the stabbing occurred, turned in a broken knife that was left at the scene and gave police a statement on what he saw. While he still hospitalized, Carr was later able to identify Miller and Palacio from pictures police brought to the K.H.M.H. they were detained earlier this week.

    Does anyone even remember what started this fight & was it worth losing your life or freedom? Get the hateful look off your faces & learn to walk away or at least talk.


    The art of conversation or discussion has been lost; death has taken its place. Lives=no value in Belize, sad isn’t it.

    Belizeans are loosing all of the benefits of the wisdom of the older people. My grandmother had a saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words cannot”. What can be so bad to cause a person or persons to plot to take someones life. I venture to guess that these young people have forgotten that God is real. They do not believe that there is a heaven and a hell and one of the things we are told by God not to do and that is “Thou shalt not kill”.
