For his manslaughter court date, he brought a bag full of clothes

Jason Rodney Castillo

The celebrations on carnival day were marred by tragedy for a George Street family when twenty-five year old security guard, Shane Dougal, was knocked down and killed on his way to work in Ladyville. At the time of the accident on September eighth, the driver of the vehicle was identified as twenty-year old Jason Rodney Castillo and after almost two months of investigations, he was charged today. Castillo was arraigned for Manslaughter by Negligence, Causing Death by Careless Conduct, Driving a Motor Vehicle without Due Care and Attention and Failure to Provide a Urine or Blood Specimen. Police believe that Castillo may have been under the influence of alcohol when he knocked Dougal off his bicycle in a Nissan Altima Car. Castillo pleaded not guilty to the charge of failure to provide a specimen while the other charges are indictable and a plea will be taken if the case if elevated to the Supreme Court after a preliminary inquiry.  Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith had Castillo remanded to the Belize Central Prison until December sixth, but he came prepared for jail with a bag of clothes.
