21-year-old Mark Waight,  who was charged with the attempted murder of Jamelia Neal, will know his fate on December 18, 2019, when Justice Colin Williams is expected to hand down his decision. Today, Waight called two witnesses in his defense, including his sister, Desiree Waight, who testified that he was with her at the time of the incident. Last month, the court heard from the victim, Neal, who testified concerning the incident. Neal told the court that on the night of 23 June 2015, she was at a shop on Caesar Ridge Road in Belize City making a purchase when Waight pointed a gun in her face. Waight pulled the trigger, but the gun snapped. Neal then tried to escape from her assailant; however, Waight managed to fire several shots while Neal was fleeing. Consequently, Neal was wounded in the shoulder, elbow, and hip. A police officer also testified as to taking a statement from the victim at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and interviewing the accused. Waight was unrepresented while Senior Crown Counsel Shanice Williams prosecuted the case. On June 13 of this year, Waight was acquitted of journalist Kareem Clarke’s murder.
