By Breaking Belize News Staff: In a plea bargain before Justice Derick Sylvester on Tuesday, 20-year-old Kriston Francis pleaded guilty to the murder of Adrian Pook, 29. Pook was shot and killed on April 30, 2023, in front of his family yard in Belize City.

Francis, represented by attorney Arthur Saldivar, expressed remorse and acknowledged his actions. Saldivar emphasized Francis’ young age at the time of the crime and his clean prior record. Justice Sylvester has scheduled sentencing for July 16, 2024, and ordered a Psychiatric Evaluation, Social Inquiry Report, and Victim Impact Statement.

Francis has been in custody since the murder, nearly 14 months ago. Adrian Pook was fatally shot after an altercation with Francis, who was subdued by Pook’s father until police arrived.
