In yesterday’s newscast we told you of the stabbing death of a young man in the Lords Bank Area in Ladyville Village, Belize District.  Tonight we can tell you that following investigations into this incident, 19-year-old, Kafele Shemar Kishawn, a Belizean student was charged with murder earlier today.  25-year-old, Ervin Franklin was stabbed multiple times in the wee hours of Saturday morning whilst walking on Edwin Parks Avenue with a female.  Police have stated the motive to be jealousy but neighbours are saying that it may be a robbery as Franklin was seen earlier in the night with a large sum of money.  A post mortem examination was conducted yesterday and it was certified that the cause of death was exsanguination due to external bleeding.
