Man accused of assaulting wife remanded after outburst in court

Posted: Wednesday, May 22, 2024. 12:30 pm CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: A Belize City man, 27-year-old Alton Garcia, remains in custody after a boisterous court appearance Tuesday. Garcia, from Southside Belize City, faced the Belize City Magistrate’s Court charged with four offenses: one count of threat of death, one count of harm, and two counts of aggravated assault with a knife.

The charges stem from a domestic incident on May 19, 2024, involving his estranged common-law wife, a 22-year-old mother of three. Despite the victim’s wish to withdraw charges, the court, led by female prosecutor Sergeant Gillett, denied the withdrawal due to the serious nature of the offenses and the involvement of a two-year-old child.

Garcia pleaded not guilty to all charges but was denied bail due to the threat posed to the victims and the prevalence of domestic violence. His disruptive behavior led the Senior Magistrate to remand him in custody until Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. for further proceedings.
