The death of a Succotz resident on La Isla Bonita has led police to arrest and charge four minors between the ages of 13 and 15 for the offense of manslaughter. On October 10th, 46-year-old Emerito Itza was hanging out on the eastern end of Sand Piper Street with 24-year-old Marwin Lizama, when they were attacked by a group of young men. One of the minors grabbed a piece of wood and hit Itza and Lizama in the head. Itza, who was badly injured, was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Monday, October 15th, whilst undergoing treatment for the injury.

The minors were escorted to the Belize City Family Court on Friday, October 19th, to face a charge of manslaughter. No plea was taken since the matter is an indictable offense and the minors will be remanded in a juvenile detention center until their next court appearance on November 20th. The minors were represented by attorney, Simeon Samspon.
