Police have arrested and charged Jamaican national Mark Dwayne Dallas, 32, with murder for inflicting injuries upon a drunken man which led to his death.

On July 30 police provided assistance to Oscar Richard Rubio, 38, and Danri Darum, 57, at the Belize Constitution Park. The men were found in the park heavily intoxicated and both had head and body injuries. Police transported them to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment. Police did not follow up until August 13 when they received a report that Rubio passed away due to his injuries. Quick investigation led them to discover that the men were injured during an altercation near the Conch Shell Bay fish market. In a drunken brawl it is alleged that Dallas struck Rubio across the head with an object.  

Mark Dwayne Dallas was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith on Monday, August 18. He appeared unrepresented and was read a single charge of murder. No plea was taken and he was remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until his next scheduled court appearance on October 2. Dallas told the Chief magistrate that he is a Jamaican national who has been living in Belize for 22 years. He said he has been sick and is poor. He also claims that he is demon possessed and he began to speak in a manner that was difficult to understand.
