Hensleigh Ryan Jones, 30 year-old, Corozal resident, has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison for allegedly shooting his dad in the head.

 Corozal Police responded to an incident in Ranchito Village on January 1, and they were informed that it happened at the home of 53 year-old Hensley “Nick” Jones. When they arrived at the house, they found Hensley Jones suffering from 3 gunshot wounds to the head. He told police that his son, Hengsleigh Jones, shot him for no apparent reason. Fortunately, he survived the incident, and he was rushed to the KHMH where the medical professionals were able to save his life.

 The officers found a .38 special revolver at the house with 5 live rounds inside it, and based on the report from the dad, Hensleigh Jones was charged with attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, and dangerous harm. He was arraigned on Friday, February 3, in front of Magistrate Merlene Moody, who remanded him to prison until his next court date, which is scheduled for March 5.

 In an interesting note, the 3 brothers, Ezekiel, Edwardo And Carlos Hall who were remanded for trying to smuggle contraband from the Corozal Free Zone on Thursday, December 19, are all employees of Hensley and Hensleigh Jones. It was their garbage truck that these brothers used to try to move the goods, pretending that it was just a part of the garbage load. Jones is the owner of the contract to conduct sanitation works in the communities around the Free Zone.
