Socialite Jasmine Hartin was transferred to the Belize Central Prison on Tuesday, after she was charged with accidentally shooting dead a prominent local police officer.
Images published by The Daily Mail show Hartin — the daughter-in-law of British billionaire Lord Michael Ashcroft — being led out of a stifling San Pedro police station.
She had been held at the station — in a tiny concrete cell which a local described as “hell on earth” — since first being brought in for questioning after Friday’s fatal shooting of San Pedro Superintendent Henry Jemmott.
Hartin, 32, was denied bail at her arraignment on Monday evening on a charge of manslaughter by negligence.
Her lawyers were unable to successfully appeal the decision of a local magistrate, who ruled the mom of two was a flight risk.
