A Belizean man was arrested and charged for the murder of his girlfriend in western Belize. The victim has been identified as 31-year-old American National, Ariana Jones. According to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Joseph Myvett, her neighbor heard screams in the early hours of Saturday morning, roughly at about one o’clock. Police were not contacted until 5:30am. Love News reporter Courtney Menzies traveled out west to find out more about this latest murder.
Jones is originally from Washington, USA, and moved to Belize some years ago. Notably, her late husband, 29-year-old Lloyden “Smokey” Bejerano was fatally shot in his own home in San Ignacio, Cayo District, last year. Police do not believe that the two murders are connected.
