The police department had made progress in solving the murder of Felina Margaret James. The mother of two was reported missing after she didn’t show up to take her kids from their babysitter. The hunt for James took place in Sarteneja, Belmopan and the Coastal Road. James’ vehicle was eventually found at a chop shop in Dangriga while her ID’s were found in Belmopan. The police has now formally charged James’ former boyfriend for her murder.
Insp Wilfredo Ferrufino: “In regards to the update Ms. Felina Margaret James, on the 30th of October Police formally arrested and charged Albert Steven Moreira a 27 year old Belize Defense Force Soldier of a Fabers Rd. Extension address. We know that previous before they were involved in a relationship however the investigation is still ongoing to determine if they were indeed in a relationship at the time of the incident. Well I do know that certain parts of the vehicle were taken to I believe it was customs and they have a process in which they use to try to see if we can get the VIN number. There is no update in regards to that, I think the process is still ongoing and we are waiting on that.”
Before her death, James planned to reunite with her husband in the United States.
