By Aaron Humes: It has now been more than a decade since the incredible triple murder of mоthеr Каrеn Ѕkееn; ѕіѕtеr Тееnа; and ѕtерfаthеr and Каrеn’ѕ husband Robert Vеllоѕ, ѕеnіоr, іn thе fаmіlу hоmе іn Lаdуvіllе оn Nоvеmbеr 24, 2012.

The man accused of the crime, their relative Jared Ranguy, heard on Friday what he has already heard before: that his expected term of imprisonment for the crimes, should he choose to accept it, will be 40 years to life, less time on remand.

Represented by Senior Counsel Godfrey Smith, on February 6, 2024, he asked the court for a sentencing indication should he plead guilty before High Court Justice Nigel Pilgrim, the third judge to sit on the case.

Justice Pilgrim told the accused that while one of the worst Belize had ever seen, the Crown would not pursue capital punishment under the established standard of “the worst of the worst”; but after taking into account the many factors and elements involved, the sentences would be 40 years to life times three, with 11 years three months on remand deducted.

Ranguy previously rejected a similar deal when represented by Senior Counsel Hubert and Orson Elrington in 2023. He has until March 15 to decide with his attorney if he will take this version. At that time, he claimed he felt forced to plead guilty.

Ranguy is accused of shooting Teena dead in her bedroom, then stabbing Karen multiple times and shooting Robert Vellos. He allegedly claimed responsibility in a caution statement to police, but the issue of his mental state at the time was questioned.

Ranguy has managed to delay justice by repeatedly changing his legal representation and his family have said publicly that they want closure to this case. They declined public comment on the latest development.
