By Ingrid Fernandez, Staff Reporter

A 16 year-old high school student and another, aged 19, were remanded to the Hattieville Prison on Friday, for the murder of Canadian film maker, Mathiew Klink. 

Officer Commanding the San Ignacio police formation, Superintendent Andrew Ramirez confirmed that the two teenagers appeared before Magistrate Albert Hoare at around 3:00 p.m. on Friday, on charges with the criminal offenses of ‘Murder’ and ‘Conspiracy to commit murder’.

The accused are 19-year-old Brandon Anderson of Loma Luz Boulevard and a 16-year-old high school student.

Reports are that police picked up the 16-year-old at the high school he attends, after the investigation confirmed his involvement.

Police say they found money that, presumably belonged to Klink, at the home of one of the young men, linking him to the scene through circumstantial evidence. Both young men are expected to return to court on April 16, 2016. 

Mathiew Klink, 37, was murdered at a friend’s home, which he was house-sitting near Spanish Lookout, last week. He was famous for his productions of “La Isla Bonita”, the first Belize’s Spanish Telenovela, based on Ambergis Caye and “The Curse of the Xtabai”, a Belize inspired film.
