By BBN Staff: Today Hilderbrant Robateau, 67, was remanded to court after shooting his common-law wife in front of their children in Central Farm, Cayo.
He pled not guilty to charges of attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm but was remanded to prison until October 22.
Last Thursday, Robateau entered his kitchen where he saw his common-law wife, Rosa Gamez, 48, and their daughter talking.
Yet he pulled out his shotgun and fired a single shot which caught Gamez in her left thigh. She was rushed to the San Ignacio hospital where she remains in a stable condition.
Robateau then handed over his licensed shotgun and two cartridges to police.
