Charges have also been levied in connection with a previous murder in the city almost a month ago. Today, Henry Jacobs, a fisherman and resident of Fabers Road Extension was arrested and charged for the Murder of forty-nine year old Brian Welch, a deportee. Since he returned to Belize earlier this year, Welch had been living in Hattieville. But on the evening of April twenty-ninth, he was on Fabers Road and that’s where trouble found him. As Welch walked, a lone gunman approached and opened fire on him. A single shot hit him in the face and he was soon discovered dead in a nearby yard.
