Anke Doehm sentencing for death of daughter delayed

Posted: Thursday, March 14, 2024. 8:34 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Anke Doehm, 63, who was found guilty in the death of her 13-year-old daughter Faye Lin Cannon and is awaiting sentencing in the matter, appeared in court on Thursday but her sentencing was delayed.

Doehm exited the prison bus looking frail and clearly affected by her incarceration. The sitting Judge had ordered written submissions from both the Crown and the defense relating to sentencing guidelines. The defense claims that Doehm has been diagnosed with cancer and was receiving treatment in Mexico prior to her trial. 

Her defense had fought against her being remanded to jail because of her medical condition but due to the serious nature of the offense for which she has been convicted, she was remanded to prison. Her sentencing has further been adjourned to April 8.

Doehm was charged with neglect in the shocking and brutal death of her own 13-year-old adopted daughter. Damning evidence was presented to the court by the Director of Public Prosecution, Cheryl Lynn Vidal in the form of gruesome photos that showed poor Cannon’s state at the time of her death. Her body was described as thin and frail. Medical records concluded she was malnourished and under-developed for her age.

Cannon’s sister also gave a virtual testimony to the court, in which she described seeing David Doehm stomping Cannon in the chest in front of Anke Doehm who only told David he could not do that before she left to go to Belize City. 

Cannon was not taken to a doctor, probably because of the amount of bruises on her body, Vidal told the court. A doctor certified that Cannon died from compression if the chest, which compromised her heart and lungs.
