What had started as a normal day for 47-year-old, Steve Munnings turned volatile and resulted in his death in Hattieville Village, Belize District.  Police briefed the media on how that incident reportedly transpired on Saturday afternoon just before three o’clock.

To clarify the statement made by police, the murder victim was doing some works for the alleged culprit, Hugh Dyer, and when Dyer went to Munnings’ home in Hattieville, he encountered his estranged common-law-wife at the residence.  An argument ensued which led to Dyer allegedly attacking Munnings at the home.  A neighbour spoke to the media earlier today.

Dyer was charged with murder earlier today before Magistrate Ladonna John; he was remanded into custody until October 20.
