Martinez charged for murder of a Salvadorean national

54-year-old Efrain Martinez,  a Salvadoran national and a former employee of Belize Marine and Mooring Services located at four and a half miles on the George Price Highway, will stand trial for murder in the Supreme Court.

54-year-old Efrain Martinez,  a Salvadoran national and a former employee of Belize Marine and Mooring Services located at four and a half miles on the George Price Highway, will stand trial for murder in the Supreme Court. Martinez charged with the murder of  43-year-old Elmer Salazar, a Guatemalan national, was committed to stand trial today in the January 2020 session of the Supreme Court by Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser, after a preliminary inquiry was held to decide whether there was sufficient evidence to make a prima facie case against him. According to police reports, it was in the month of January 2019 that Salazar had an altercation with several employees at Belize Marine and Mooring Services. It was during the altercation that Martinez allegedly attacked Salazar. Consequently, Salazar was seen suffering from multiple chop wounds to his body. As a result, he was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.
