By Breaking Belize News Staff: A police officer’s son, Dwayne Sutherland Jr., 23, has been charged and remanded to prison on a slew of indictable offences after he allegedly stabbed two elderly relatives after a cricket match in Lemonal over the weekend.

Sutherland Jr. appeared unrepresented in court today where he was read two counts of attempted murder, two counts of use of deadly means of harm, one count of wounding and one count of threatening behavior.

According to police reports, on August 19, Sutherland Jr., along with a group of men were drinking and socializing after the cricket match in the village when he got into an altercation with Tony Anthony, 64, and Russel Anthony, 62.

Both men were stabbed to the abdomen and transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

Police also recovered the knife from the scene.
