ANTHONY BENNETT

Another case has ended in nolle prosequi before Justice Colin Williams.  38-year-old Anthony Bennett, who was charged with the murder of 30-year-old Erbin Garrido, walked from a charge of murder this morning.

Another case has ended in nolle prosequi before Justice Colin Williams.  38-year-old Anthony Bennett, who was charged with the murder of 30-year-old Erbin Garrido, walked from a charge of murder this morning. The case fell apart against Bennett when the crown was unable to locate their main witness. Consequently, Senior Crown Counsel Shanice Lovell was forced to enter a nolle prosequi indicating that the crown will not proceed with the case. As a result, Justice Colin Williams discharged Bennett, who was represented by attorney Leslie Hamilton. According to police reports, the incident occurred around 8:00 on the night of May 29, 2018. Garrido was gunned down in his home in the CET Site area off Holy Emmanuel Street in Belize City.
