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.

- Police superintendent Henry Jemmott told a friend he was going on a date the night he was killed
- Jemmott joked with the friend that he would take his secret 'to the grave' when asked for details of the mystery women
- Hours later he was shot in the head by Canadian socialite Jasmine Hartin
- Jemmott, 42, had also boasted that he was staying for free at a luxury resort operated by Hartin's husband Andrew Ashcroft
Hartin, 32, is facing a charge of manslaughter by negligence after she told cops she accidentally opened fire as she passed Jemmott his Glock service revolver.
Sources say he had placed it on the ground while the pair were drinking and socializing into the early hours of last Friday in violation of Belize's midnight Covid curfew.
It's not known whether the couple are currently living in the Alaia or the Grand Colony Villas, or whether Andrew, 43, and their two young children are still on Ambergris Caye.
The 32-year-old is facing up to five years in prison or a huge fine in the shooting of Belize police officer Henry Jemmott.
Police sources believe Hartin will ultimately escape with just a fine for killing Jemmott after authorities opted against a murder or full-fledged manslaughter charge. They predict she could plead guilty within weeks and pay around 20,000 Belizean dollars (around $10,000 in US money) to secure her freedom.
This safe, simple, and fast system allows the user to concentrate fully on shooting without having any additional actions to disengage and reengage safeties. This means it is safe if it’s dropped, and additionally it functions at temperatures from -40° to 122° Fahrenheit.
All three safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically re-engage when the trigger is released.
The trigger safety is the first safety in the firing sequence. It’s incorporated into the trigger in the form of a lever and when it is engaged blocks the trigger from moving rearward. To fire the pistol, the trigger safety and the trigger itself must be deliberately depressed at the same time. If the trigger safety is not depressed, the trigger will not move rearwards and allow the pistol to fire.
The trigger safety is designed to prevent the pistol from firing if it’s dropped or if the trigger is subjected to any pressure that isn’t a direct firing pull.
