Belize City man, Keith Middleton, the ex- boyfriend of a woman attacked with a screw driver, is spending time at the Belize Central Prison after he was denied bail on July 18, 2017 when he appeared before a Belize City Magistrate on two criminal offenses.

Middleton is a 30-year-old unemployed resident of Jane Usher Boulevard. He appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith for the offenses of aggravated assault with a screw driver and wounding of his ex-girlfriend, Muteeshe Smith. In court where Middleton was unrepresented, he was read two charges, both to which he pleaded not guilty.

Allegations are that on Sunday, July 16, 2017, he attacked his ex-girlfriend, Muteeshe Smith while armed with a screw driver and caused a wound to her. In a report given by Smith, she was walking when she met Middleton. The two got into an altercation and he pulled out a screwdriver and attacked her. According to Smith, she sustained a cut wound to the eye and abrasions to her forehead and abdomen.

Fearing that Middleton could cause more harm on his ex-girlfriend if released, he was denied bail by the Chief Magistrate and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until August 31, 2017.
