policeOn November 12th 2010 Abram Derkens, a six year old student of Tres Leguas in Blue Creek, was walking home for lunch when he was knocked down by Henry Mortins. At the time of the incident Mortins was driving an unlicensed maroon Max motorcycle. To make matters worse the motorcycle was not covered by a third party insurance.

As a result of the accident Derkens received severe head and body injuries and was pronounced dead on arrival at the Northern Regional Hospital. Following police investigations Henry Mortins was arrested and charged for manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct, driving a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, and driving a motor vehicle without third party insurance.

Mortins was granted bail and since then has been awaiting a preliminary inquiry for his case to be sent to the Supreme Court. Today the P.I was held and the prosecution presented ten witnesses for the case including CIB Hermain Campus, scenes of crime Oscar Valladarez, and Corporal Eduardo Patt of the Orange Walk Police Department. Sketches and pictures of the scene will also form part of the evidence.

After the witnesses took the stand and committed themselves to the trial, Magistrate Merlene Moody sent the matter to the Supreme Court.
