JermaineJermaine “Horse” Garnett and Kenneth Barrow joined Cassian Bennett on Thursday, December 27th, when they were charged for the murder of 19-year-old Raheem Requena. Requena was gunned down at the corner of Supaul Street and Kut Avenue on December 19th, 2012. He was not known to be gang affiliated and his murder is believed to be a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. 

On Thursday, Garnett and Barrow appeared before Magistrate Adolph Lucas to hear the charge of murder read to them. No plea was taken since the charge is an indictable offense. They were remanded to the Belize Central Prison until their next court appearance on January 30th.

On Monday, December 24th, Cassian Bennett was the first to be charged in connection to the murder of Requena. Also charged in connection with the murder on Thursday were Pamela Garnett, wife of Jermaine Garnett, and her son, Mark Vernon. They were both charged with attempted suppression of evidence. Allegations are that Garnett and her son paid Marie Alvarez $500 on December 25th to refrain from testifying in the murder trial. Both will be remanded at the Belize Central Prison until their next court appearance on January 11th, 2013. In court, Pamela Garnett was represented by attorneys Dickie Bradley and Anthony Sylvester.
