Does Belize have capital punishment?

The first and only woman to be executed in Belize was Nora Parham on June 5, 1963.

She was convicted for setting her common-law husband, P.C. Ketchell Trapp, on fire in Orange Walk on February 8, 1963.

Parham was only 36 years-old, four feet eight inches tall and weighed 115 pounds when she was executed. Records show she was a severely abused woman who took Trapps life to save her own.
