Police allege that Indira Mejia had conspired with two men to murder Brian Claire, who was shot and injured on August 6.
“Our investigations reveal that Miss Indira Meja planned to kill her common-law-husband. It appears that Miss Mejia wants to get rid of her common-law-husband for his property,” said Sergeant Robertp Novelo.
He said the investigations had shown that she “is the one who lured Briane Claire to that location where he was shot”.
Police have arrested and charged Ignatius Williams 24, with attempted murder, wounding, use of a deadly means of harm and grievous harm with a firearm. He was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison. Police said they were seeking another person who was with Williams when the attempt on Claire’s life was made.
Meija, who has been charged with abetment to murder, appeared before Magistrate Anne Marie Smith and was granted bail over the objections of the prosecutor.
She is to surrender all her travel documents, stay away from Claire and report to the police station weekly.
