Tonight a 23 year old resident from the Village of San Jose Nuevo Palmar in Orange Walk is celebrating his behind bars. If you may recall, back in 2007 Eric Castillo was convicted for beating 30-year-old Nelson Castellanos to death inside a holding cell at the Orange Walk Police Station. In 2009, after spending two years behind bars waiting for his trial, Castillo was acquitted after a jury of twelve found him not guilty of murder.
Well, tonight Castillo is back in prison for breaking into the residence of Alberta Catzim located in the Village of Nuevo Palmar. According to eye witnesses around 4:00pm on Sunday while the annual Fiesta Del Pueblo was in full swing Castillo decided to burglarize Catzim’s residence.
But Castillo ran out of luck when a resident of the area noticed a man walking behind his house in some bushes, with a 39 inch television. The man, accompanied by other neighbors, immediately confronted Castillo and held him hostage until the police arrived at the scene and arrested him.
Castillo was charged today for burglary, common assault and use of treating words. Castillo was remanded to prison until his next court date set for November 27th, 2013.
