Homeless Man Remanded for Stabbing Incident in Belize City

Mark Anthony Stevens, who says he is homeless, is now staying at the Belize Central Prison after he was remanded for the stabbing of Honduran national Juan Rios Pineda. Stevens appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court yesterday, charged with attempted murder. No plea was taken as the matter will be handled on indictment at the High Court. In court, Stevens appeared depressed and told the magistrate that he is tired of being a victim of police brutality and tired of his life. He was remanded to prison until September 9, but first had to be taken for treatment at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital as he sustained an injury to one of his fingers during the incident. He told the magistrate that he was taken to the hospital but the police never returned his medico legal form. Allegations are that Stevens attacked and stabbed Pineda multiple times while Pineda was walking his dog through the Lord Ridge Cemetery on the night of Saturday, June 8.
