After reviewing the evidence against Chen, the Chief Magistrate committed Chen’s murder case to the April 7th, 2014 session of the Supreme Court.

Chen, who is represented by Attorney Antoinette Moore, arrived on the Prison bus without special police escort, as had been in the past. Attorney at the Director of Public Prosecution’s Office, Alford Humes, presented evidence in the form of a bundle which contained statements from Chen’s surviving daughter, police officers, Dr. Mario Estradabran and other persons who were involved in the case. Also handed over were documentary exhibits such as birth and death certificates of the dead children, post mortem reports of the three children, pictures and a copy of a protection order.

When asked if they had any alibi witness to present to the court, Moore replied no.

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, Chen took her four children to the Belizean Beach which is located a near the mile 3 ½ checkpoint on the George Price Highway where she allegedly drowned them. She allegedly killed 3 of her four children as the oldest girl who saw what was happening ran and was rescued.

Chen has been in a metal facility since April 2013 and on her last visit to the court, she was order to be remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
