By BBN Staff: Twenty-year-old Chervin Tench was freed from a charge of murder in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today.
Tench, who has been on remand for the past 8 months, was charged with the broad daylight shooting of taxi driver Erwin Castillo.
Today the prosecutor told the court that there was a directive from the Director of Public Prosecutions to withdraw the charges against Tench due to lack of evidence.
Tench’s defense was that he was in Dangriga at the time of the murder, mourning the death of his brother.
