Andy Bustillo pleads guilty to two counts of manslaughter for the brutal shooting deaths of Miriam Mai and Daisy Miralda in Santa Elena

By BBN Staff: After six years on remand at the Belize Central Prison, Andy Bustillo decided to change his not guilty plea for the murder of Miriam Mai and Daisy Miralda, to a guilty plea for the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Bustillo, who was represented by attorney Anthony Sylvester, changed his plea for the 2016 shooting, six months into his murder trial, which began back in November 2021.

The Belmopan Supreme Court accepted his guilty plea and Justice Francis Cumberbatch has reserved sentencing for May 31.

Bustillo said that when he entered Betty’s Salon on April 31, 2016, he did not intend to kill Mai, who was his estranged lover, but lost his temper after they ended up in an altercation. Reports are that she had refused to reconcile with him, and even had a restraining order out on him.

After he shot both women, and shooting wildly at customers in the salon, he turned the gun on himself, firing a single shot to the temple, but survived. That injury left him fully blind.
