By BBN Staff: When 29-year-old Keyron Gibson appeared in the Supreme Court this week for his mitigation plea ahead of sentencing for a conviction of murder, he chose to say nothing and let his attorney, Oscar Selgado, do the talking.
Gibson was convicted in July of the 2014 murder of 31-year-old Tulio Caceres which happened just in front of Majestic Alley in Belize City. The case was heard before Justice Herbert Lord who gave Gibson the opportunity to plea the court’s mercy on Wednesday, but Selgado spoke in his place and asked that the court impose a sentence of no more than 15 years.
Justice Lord reserved sentencing until December 22, 2021, saying that he needed to properly consider all said on his behalf and the impact statement of the victim’s family.
Caceres’ brother gave a statement to the court, explaining how his death has affected the family, noting that his brother left behind a young son who was traumatized by his father’s death. The brother also noted that Caceres’ son had to be sent abroad for counseling.
The shooting was believed to be gang-related, as Caceres was believed to be a member of the Taylor’s Alley Gang, which has a long-standing rivalry with those from Majestic Alley.
Police officer Shamir Mai testified that while on duty in the area, he saw Gibson commit the murder and then rode right past him on a bicycle.
