31-year-old, Glenn Ramirez and his wife, Deshawn Ramirez got married one year ago today. Instead of celebrating their wedding anniversary, the two have found themselves in the news as Glenn was stabbed to death and Deshawn has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison for his murder. The incident occurred on Friday night just after eleven o’clock in Seine Bight Village, Stann Creek District. Commanding Officer for Dangriga, Senior Superintendent Ralph Moody spoke to the media on the incident.
“On arrival in Seine Bight they saw a male person lying on the main street in front of a Chinese store. Police then picked up the individual and transported him to the Polyclinic in Placencia Village. He was later transferred to the Southern Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Police also detained a female who we later found out is the wife of Mr. Ramirez. She was picked up and escorted to the Dangriga Police Station and later a statement was retrieved from her. I was just informed that it was a domestic between both of them and that the male person did something to the female and the female took out a knife and assaulted the individual with it.”
According to Moody, there have been talks of turbulence in the marriage but no official report or complaint was made to the police. Glenn was stabbed to the left side of his chest.
