More charges for October shooting in City

Posted: Wednesday, April 3, 2019. 2:11 pm CST.

Aaron Humes: Five months ago, 19 year old Thomas Ferguson was shot in the back and lower abdomen near his home on Arlington Drive, Belize City.

 He lived to tell the tale and quickly identified his attacker: 27 year old Jermaine Matura, who lives around the corner on Central American Boulevard.

 

Matura was arrested for attempted murder and is currently on bail. But he now faces additional charges based on the medical examination of a doctor at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Matura was on Tuesday read charges of maim and use of deadly means of harm before Magistrate Christine Perrera. No plea was taken as the charges are indictable and he remains on bail granted by the Supreme Court.  

 

 Ferguson and another man were standing on the street when they were approached by a man later identified as Matura, who started firing at them.

 

 Matura was one of four men charged with the August 2010 murder of student and shop assistant Helen Yu, 14, during an armed robbery at the store on Iguana Street; prosecutors halted the case in May of 2016 on a nolle prosequi motion.
