Teenagers freed of murder charges in death of Emert Flowers due to insufficient evidence

Posted: Tuesday, July 25, 2023. 11:00 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Two teenagers accused of committing a senseless murder of a senior citizen and leaving another seriously injured are free after the charge was withdrawn from them.

19-year-old Adrian Andrew Hernandez and a minor, 17, both of Belize City appeared Monday afternoon before the Magistrate’s Court where the police prosecutor informed the court that, based on a directive sent from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)’s office, they were instructed to withdraw the charge of murder against both accused due to insufficient evidence to pursue the case.

While Hernandez was free to go, the 17 year-old minor remained in custody since he has a pending robbery charge.

The duo were accused of the murder of Emert Flowers on Racecourse Street on Tuesday, December 27, 2022, when Flowers and 77-year-old Dusseldore Waight were innocently shot. Flowers died on the spot while Waight was injured, hospitalized, and later released. They had been sitting inside a yard on Racecourse Street when a gunman ran in and opened fire on them.

The intended target is said to have been Flowers’ son, Kyle Latchman, who was previously reported missing by his family. Latchman has not been seen or heard from since and is presumed dead.
