A domestic dispute turned fatal in rural Belize and led to the detention of a mother and daughter over the weekend. On Saturday evening, fifty-two-year-old, Dean Halliday and his girlfriend, 42-year-old Farah Bonner, arrived at their home in Maxboro Village and began to argue. The quarrel escalated and led to a dispute in which, Halliday pulled out a knife and stabbed Bonner. As the two struggled, Bonner’s daughter, 25-year-old Feleecia Kerr intervened and stabbed Halliday multiple times with a separate knife. Halliday died from his injuries, and both Bonner and Kerr were detained. Love New spoke to Halliday’s brother, Henry, who explained that his younger brother had a drinking problem. He says that only two days ago, he spoke to Halliday and advised him to give up his vices.
Police have recovered both knives, suspected to be the weapons used in the crime.
