UB student taken to court for murder

Jedd Burgess

The last murder in the city occurred eleven days ago when twenty-one year old Jamal Anthony Neal was gunned down on July eighth.  Today, a University of Belize student, Jedd Burgess of Tibruce Street located in the Saint Martin’s de Porres area, Belize City, was taken to court for the homicide.  Burgess, who was unrepresented appeared before the Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer, and after arraignment for murder, he was transported to the Belize Central Prison.  Neal had just placed a phone call to his mother, Marianita Neal and was on Banak Street, when he was executed by two men who rode up on a Meilun motorcycle and fired at least eight shots at him. While he was considered a gang affiliate, his murder appeared to have been triggered by a long standing fall-out. When he was killed, Neal was on bail and had several charges including robbery pending in the Magistrate’s Court.
