By Breaking Belize News Staff: Teakettle Village resident 34-year-old Marty Mendez has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison on a charge of attempted murder.
Mendez appeared in the High Court of Belize alongside his attorney Arthur Saldivar, before Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft.
Despite the prosecution not objecting to Mendez receiving bail, Justice Sandcroft denied bail in the first instance saying he was not convinced Mendez would adhere to the conditions of his bail. Justice Sandcroft also said he would revisit the bail application in a week.
Mendez is charged for the March 30 shooting of 34-year-old Erwin Santos, also of Teakettle.
