Canadian on remand for theft charges; police question him in double murder case

Svlcsnap-2017-05-09-20h31m29s254teve Perrera is also the attorney for Canadian John Deshaies.  It has been reported that Deshaies is being questioned by Corozal police in relation to the double murder of  foreigners 52 year old Canadian Francesca Matus and  36 year old American, Drew Devoursey. Deshaeis was the tenant at Matus’ Consejo Home.   Perrera did not comment on that particular murder case much since Deshaies has not been charged in that matter; he is only being questioned. However, the Canadian has been charged with theft in a separate matter. Last Friday, Deshais was arraigned in the Independence Magistrates Court to answer charges of theft and handling stolen goods. This is in relation to some $57,000 worth of items he allegedly removed  from the Placencia Casino. His attorney spoke on that matter. vlcsnap-2017-05-09-20h32m18s526

Steve Perrera, Anthony for Andre Vega & Hilmer Alamilla: The situation with Mister Deshaie is that we have yet to meet, to go over the details of this matter. However, what we do know at this point in time is that Mister Deshaie had only been assisting his employers who were the then managers of the casino in respect to the items and then eventually there were some kind of dispute between the parties and this charge was raised against him.

Deshaeis was placed on remand because it is believed that he may be a flight risk but Perera says he will try to get a bail hearing for him on Friday.  vlcsnap-2017-05-09-20h33m36s909 vlcsnap-2017-05-09-20h33m56s696
