By Breaking Belize News Staff: Twenty-three-year-old Ethan Andrew Matura was fined $4,000 by Justice Candace Nanton after pleading guilty to causing death by careless conduct in a fatal traffic accident. Initially charged with manslaughter by negligence, Matura, an Office Assistant from Belmopan, accepted a plea deal for the lesser charge.

The accident occurred on June 22, 2022, at the intersection of Slaughter House Road and Cleghorn Street, resulting in the death of Rodel Williams. Matura failed to stop at a stop sign, leading to a collision that caused Williams’ fatal injuries.

Represented by attorney Hurl Hamilton, Matura’s cooperation with police and remorse for his actions were noted in court. Justice Nanton imposed the fine, acknowledging that Williams’ family had already received $43,500 in compensation from Matura’s insurance.

Matura has six months to pay the fine.
