Belizean in the US gets life in prison for murder

1 min read

Twenty two year old Belizean, Brian Omar Hyde was sentenced yesterday to serve four consecutive life sentences in prison in the US. He was found guilty of killing his aunt, her pregnant daughter and the daughter’s boyfriend with a machete. He was convicted in April of four counts of second-degree murder. Prosecutors say Hyde used a machete to kill 37-year-old Dorla Pitts, 17-year-old Starlette Pitts, and 19-year-old Michael Deon Kelly Jr. at their Lehigh Acres home in 2015. Prosecutors added the additional murder charge for Starlette Pitts’ unborn child. The victims were found dead after a family friend went to check on them. Hyde was arrested after he was pulled over by law enforcement for driving erratically in his aunt’s car.
