By Breaking Belize News Staff: Leanne Elizabeth Davis, 25, has been found guilty of manslaughter for the 2021 stabbing death of her sister-in-law, Venecia Staine, 24. Davis, a mother of two, was initially charged with murder but was convicted of the lesser charge after a trial in the High Court before Justice Candace Nanton.

The incident occurred on April 4, 2021, in Gracie Rock Village, Sibun. Staine suffered six stab wounds, with the fatal blow puncturing her lung. Davis argued she was provoked, a claim that led Justice Nanton to rule manslaughter instead of murder.

Davis’ sentencing is scheduled for July 29, 2024. She has been in custody since April 2021. Her two sons have been living with their father during her imprisonment.
