By BBN Staff: Police have upgraded the charges of the three persons from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye who
shot and robbed American National, Cliff Kirk, 60, on July 5, 2018, at his home in San Pedro Town.
As BBN had previously reported, Christian Espat, 22, Nigel Williams, 25, and a minor, 16, had already been remanded to prison for aggravated burglary, dangerous harm, and attempted murder but since the victim passed away while undergoing treatment, the 3 persons will be arraigned again and their charges will be upgraded to include murder.
On the morning of July 5, 2018, Kirk was walking down the stairs of his house when he was approached by masked men, one of whom shot him to the head. The robbers then escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, a 9mm shotgun and a 12 gauge shotgun.
Kirk was then airlifted to seek medical treatment in the U.S. and later succumbed to his injuries.
