Everal Martinez was briefly and quietly arraigned before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford on Friday, March 16, 2018. Martinez was read three criminal and indictable charges including the capital crime of the murder of Alyssa Nunez, his 17-month-old stepdaughter who he is believed to have sexually molested before she succumbed to her injuries on March 4, 2018.

Martinez was also read one count of attempted rape and one count of harm, which is alleged to have occurred on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. No plea was taken and bail was not offered given the nature of the offense. As a result, he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until May 18, 2018, the day set for his next appearance.

Martinez, who is being represented by attorney Oscar Selgado, appeared unrepresented on this date. According to Selgado, he was not informed that his client would be arraigned although he was at the court doing other work.
