Ervin Ramsey charged for attempted murder

26 year old Ervin Ramsey of Mahogany Heights, Belize District, faces attempted murder charges in relation to the shooting of Joel Winston Seawell on December 11, 2014.

Ervin Ramsey is accused of opening fire on Winston Seawell and four other persons, whom he allegedly attempted to rob as they came off a bus into the village around 5:30 in the evening.

On Monday, before Magistrate Herbert Panton, he was also read charges of dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm, and remanded into custody until January 30, 2015. The remand was over the objections of attorney Audrey Matura Shepherd who told the court that Mr Ramsey was wrongly charged, and that the police failed to hold an identification parade or really do much investigation.
