By Breaking Belize News Staff: A 47-year-old man from the village of La Democracia in Belize District is out on bail after facing multiple charges following an altercation with his ex-partner.

Henry Tucker Sr., appeared unrepresented in Belize City Magistrates Court on Monday, answering charges of aggravated assault with a machete, death threat and insulting the plaintiff.

In court, Tucker pleaded not guilty to all three counts and was offered $1,000 bond plus bond in the same amount.

The two live in the same house, with one living in the upper apartment and the other in the lower one.

The allegations against Tucker are that on September 22, the plaintiff raised a question about his electricity bill and an argument ensued, where it is alleged that he pulled the machete and uttered the words for which he was accused.
