By BBN Staff: Thirty-four-year-old Belize City resident Kareem Smith was set free from a charge of murder in the Supreme Court on Monday but was still sent back to the Belize Central Prison over another charge that he has not yet received bail for.
Smith, who was charged for the November 12, 2016 murder of 41-year-old, Andrew Williams, learned yesterday that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions had entered a nolle prosequi, effectively abandoning the case against him.
The prosecution had called seven witnesses, most of them police witnesses, and was to call a doctor on Monday, but the doctor could not be located to testify. The crown then chose to abandon the case.
However, Smith has a pending unlicensed firearm charge before the courts and his attorney, Anthony Sylvester will need to apply to the Supreme Court before he can go free.
