Trial against Leon Perez kicks off for 2021 stabbing murder of Elston Morter

Posted: Thursday, March 21, 2024. 11:06 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: The trial against Leon Perez, 28, who is charged for the 2021 stabbing murder of Elston Morter kicked off in court on Wednesday but was adjourned after the Crown informed the court one of its witnesses was being evasive while another was fearful for their life.

Perez appeared in court being represented by Senior Counsel, Simeon Sampson. The Crown is represented by Crown Counsel Robert Lord. In court, a retired Scenes of Crime Technician who worked the case took the stand and laid out the crime scene and evidence gathered. The technician had also witnessed Morter’s post mortem and an identification parade in which a witness pointed out Perez.

The Crown’s other witnesses were evasive and fearful and so the Crown requested an adjournment to sort out the matter with their witnesses. The case resumes on March 22. Perez remains out on bail.
