Preliminary Inquiry Set for Robert Belbin in Second-Degree Murder Case

Robert Belbin

The preliminary inquiry has been set for a man charged with second-degree murder earlier this year.

Twenty-two-year-old Robert Belbin is accused of killing 22-year-old Seamus Secord in the area of Mayor Avenue.

Police responded to reports of a man with serious injuries on February 7. The victim was located and rushed to hospital but later died of his injuries.

Ten days later, Belbin was arrested without incident. Police have not said how the victim died or if a weapon was used.

Belbin was previously arrested, along with two co-accused, in connection with a string of shootings, as well as an assault on George Street last year.

He was recently sentenced to time-served for that assault, while the weapons offences continue to wind their way through the courts.

Five days have been set aside in June of next year for the preliminary inquiry on the murder charge. Belbin has consented to remain in custody for the time being.
