24-year-old Sherman Rodney has officially been charged with the murder of Lloyd Augustus, who was badly beaten in April and died as a result of those injuries some two months later.
In April, 35 year-old Lloyd Augustus was allegedly badly beaten by Sherman Rodney, while he was at his house on Doris Brooks Street, Belize City.
He was hospitalized for almost 2 months, and Sherman Rodney was remanded to prison for that incident, after being charged with attempted murder, dangerous harm, and use of deadly means of harm.
Lloyd Augustus died some two months later in June, and charges of murder were expected to levied on Sherman Rodney.
That murder charge has just been read to Mr Rodney this week. He remains on remand until his next court hearing.
