Thirty six year old Kenneth Lewellyn Flowers, a Belizean National recently acquitted of a Murder charge in Salt Lake Utah, was deported last week to Belize by Federal Immigration Officials. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Flowers was deported after he was convicted in August of felony illegal reentry of a deported alien and possession of a firearm and ammunition by an illegal alien. He had been sentenced to two years in federal prison with credit for time served.
That conviction the report stated, came after police had found a gun and ammunition on Flowers when they responded to a shooting in December 2010 where 45 Year old Cisco M. Cross was killed and contended in court that he shot him in self defense. The report says that Flowers had been smoking crack when Cross came to his door. An argument ensued between Flowers and Cross, and reported to police he fired his gun three times when he saw him reach for a weapon. A BB gun was found unused in the waistband of Cross. He was turned over to Belize authorities for questioning related to gang activities.
