By BBN Staff: On Thursday, BBN reported that the man accused of stabbing a nurse and brutally beating Nestor Vasquez Jr., Colin Francis was offered bail. Vasquez passed away two days after the incident.
In June, Francis was charged with attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm for the stabbing of Nurse Augustina Elijio at the Port Loyola Acute Mental Health Day Care Clinic. While in custody pending remand, Francis attacked Vasquez, who later succumbed to the injuries he sustained. But Francis was not charged with any offense concerning Vasquez’s death.
Vasquez’ brother, Jules hosted a press briefing and expressed that the family is dismayed. Jules also questioned why it is that someone who is such a danger got bail for a comparatively lesser charge than what he is accused of doing to Vasquez Jr. – and which the family is “certain” he did despite the presumption of innocence and the fact that he has not, yet, been charged.
News 7 Belize reported that on Friday morning, the Director of Public Prosecution issued a directive and Francis was re-arrested and charged for the murder of Nestor Vasquez Jr.
