By BBN Staff: Justice Antionette Moore has found Donovan Casildo, 26, and Bryan Clarke, 21, guilty of the 2011 murder of Sylvan Roberts.
In the trial-without-jury, held in the Belmopan Supreme Court, Moore considered evidence presented such as finger prints and blood from the accused which police recovered from the scene.Moore remanded the men to the Belize Central Prison until September 29, when she will hear their mitigation pleas.
Clarke’s attorney has indicated that they will appeal the decision.
The men gained access to Roberts’ Santa Elena home by breaking a window. They shot Roberts in the armpit when he got up to check on the noise he had heard.
They then kicked down Roberts’ bedroom door, beat and tied up his wife and children, and then searched his house, eventually making off with $50 and a piggy bank.
