Ashcroft socialite who 'shot' Belize cop goes to notorious scorpion-infested prison.

THE daughter-in-law of British billionaire Lord Ashcroft has been transferred to a notorious scorpion-infested prison in Belize - as she remains behind bars for "accidentally" shooting a top cop.

Jasmine Hartin, 32, is facing manslaughter by negligence charges after the body of Henry Jemmott was found floating in the sea near San Pedro on Friday.

The mother-of-two insists she shot Jemmott by accident. She said she had been giving him a massage on a pier after a night of drinking when she attempted to hand his service pistol back to him and it suddenly fired.

Family members of the slain cop have slammed law enforcement's decision to charge the Candian-born socialite with manslaughter rather than murder, insisting "this is not justice."

Hartin, after being deemed a flight risk, was denied bail on Monday and had spent the last four days cramped in a tiny concrete cell inside the magistrate's court complex in San Pedro.

The owner of the swanky local hotel Alaia, which she operates with her husband, Andrew Ashcroft, Hartin has now been transferred to one of Central America's toughest prisons.

Wearing a pink hoodie and a face mask, Hartin, was escorted by a policewoman out of the station and put onto the back of a golf cart.

She hid her handcuffs under a plastic bag as she was taken past a memorial erected outside by police to Supt Jemmott, The Times reports.
