Tonight, 19 year-old Delroy Staine, a laborer of Lord's Bank Village, is at the Belize Central Prison, after he was charged for allegedly stabbing another man with a screw driver.
The complainant, Javan Young, told police that at around 7 p.m. on last week Tuesday, January 2, he was in the "Hollywood" area of Lords Bank Village. That's where he got into an argument with Staine. Young said that the disagreement escalated when Staine pulled a screw driver and stabbed him in the chest and abdomen with it.
Police investigated the report, and they picked up a week later. He was eventually arrested and charged with attempted murder, grievous harm, and use of deadly means of harm, and he was arraigned today before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford.
Due to the nature of the offenses, Staine was not eligible for Magistrate's Court bail, and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until April 12.
