Sherman Rodney, 22 year old resident of Belize City who was recently accused of escaping from police custody, is tonight on remand at the Belize Central prison for the attempted murder of Lloyd Augustus.
Augustus was injured during an alleged fight at the home of Rodney. Rodney appeared unrepresented in court this morning and was read two indictable offenses; attempted murder and dangerous harm.
Allegations are that on April 6, 2014, he caused injuries to Lloyd Augustus. He told the court that a fight occurred at his home but he only intervened to help part the fight.
Due to the nature of the offense, Rodney was remanded into custody . On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, Rodney was charged with escaping from lawful custody where he pleaded not guilty and was offered bail.
That case is still before Court #1. In that incident, Rodney claims he did not escape; he just walked out when he was told he was finished with by the police. Rodney is due back in Court in May of this year for the attempted murder charge.
