Felicia Chen being excorted to courtOn Tuesday, May 14th, 22-year-old Felicia Chen, the young mother, who is accused of killing three of her four children on Saturday, April 27th, Belizean was back before the Belize City Magistrate’s Court for a third appearance in her triple homicide case.


Dressed in full black and apparently frighten and scared, Chen was first brought to court room #4 before Magistrate Dale Cayetano, but for some unknown reason, her case was transferred to Court #1 but the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith was absent.  Chen was escorted to Court #2 to appear before the Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer.

The appearance of Chen in court #2 came as a surprise for the Senior Magistrate, who reverted the matter back to Court #4. When she reappeared before Magistrate Cayetano, her case was adjourned. While neither her nurse nor the psychiatrist would comment on the matter, the DPP briefly explained that an evaluation was conducted on Chen and at the end of that evaluation, it was concluded that she needed to spend 8 more days in a psychiatric facility.

DPP Vidal told us that at this time she cannot release any other information on Chen since the matter is still before the court.

Chen, who was still being escorted by CIB personnel, is due back in Court #4 on May 22nd.

Chen is now being represented by attorney, Antoneitte Moore, a well known human rights activist. When asked to comment, Moore also refrained only confirming that she is Chen’s attorney at this time.
