Screen_shot_2013-10-31_at_7.42.24_PMFour men were charged in the Belize City Magistrates Court late yesterday evening in connection with the broad day light murder of 61 year old Jorge Blanco, a resident of Yo Creek Village in Orange Walk Town. 33 year old Roger Hernandez, 21 year old Alton Bailey, 25 year old Roque Middleton and 33 year old Elario Frank Elijio are tonight confined behind bars after they were arraigned in the Court of Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith.


As previously reported, the truck driver was killed last week Friday as they drove through Sandhill when robbers targeted him and his employers, Abraham Penner, as they made their way back to Orange Walk in their wholesale delivery truck. Blanco was shot once at the center of the head and died at the wheel. As a result, this caused the vehicle to veer off the road and when it stopped on the shoulder, 3 men robbed the men of approximately 10 thousand dollars and made good their escape through a neighboring yard.

 

While they were unrepresented at court, the men were jointly charged for robbery and murder and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until December 16th, 2013.
