Marsden walks for insufficient evidence

After spending three and a half years at the Belize Central Prison, 27-year-old Raheem Marsden was released yesterday when the murder charge against him was withdrawn.  Marsden was on remand after being charged for the death of 30-year-old Alfonso Castillo that occurred on July 21, 2016

After spending three and a half years at the Belize Central Prison, 27-year-old Raheem Marsden was released yesterday when the murder charge against him was withdrawn.  Marsden was on remand after being charged for the death of 30-year-old Alfonso Castillo that occurred on July 21, 2016.  The charge was withdrawn upon request of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.  At the time of the stabbing incident, Castillo was socializing with several persons, a few blocks away from his home on Victoria Street.  An argument ensued and Castillo was stabbed three times and died one week later.  Marsden appeared in the courtroom of Justice Marilyn Williams when the Crown Counsel told the court that they are entering a nolle prosequi.  While Marsden is free, the DPP’s Office can choose to bring back the murder charge if enough evidence is gathered.
