By Aaron Humes: Police have formally announced charges of manslaughter by negligence against 24-year-old Tehje Vaughan of Belize City following the shooting death of co-worker Charles Canton, 27, of Sandhill, Belize District.

According to police, on Friday evening just after five, Canton was in the front seat of his Ford Escape SUV parked on 2nd Street, King’s Park, loading a nine-millimetre pistol, with Vaughan and another man in the back seats. Canton is alleged to have placed the pistol on the handrest between the front seats while loading the magazine.

Vaughan is accused of then picking up the weapon, pointing it in Canton’s direction, and pulling the trigger, causing a fatal injury to Canton through the back of the seat. Canton died on the scene and was later taken to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) where a post-mortem examination is scheduled.
