By BBN Staff: A man accused of murder has requested a “Good Year Hearing” from the Supreme Court, to find out what his sentence would be if he decide to plead guilty.
Tyrone Reid who is jointly charged with Keon Dennison for the 2016 murder of Belize City businessman, Rueben Perez, appeared in the Supreme Court yesterday before Justice Ricardo O’Neal Sandcroft to make his request.
Judges have an obligation to provide such information to defendants in open court, so Justice Sandcroft adjourned his case until March 21, to consider what the maximum sentence would be given a guilty plea. If, on the 21, after learning the facts, he decides to plead guilty, the sentencing hearing will follow on March 22.
Notably, Reid has indicated that he is considering entering a guilty plea.
The murder took place on November 26, 2016, at Perez’s yard at the corner of Vernon Street and the George Price Highway.
Both Reid and Dennison were captured on a security camera, riding on bicycles to Perez’s home. The footage showed Perez approaching the men and one of them fired a shot that hit Perez in the neck. Perez would later be pronounced dead on arrival at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
Police believed the motive for his murder was that of a robbery.
