Screen_shot_2011-07-21_at_11.50.26_AMToday the man accused of killing 23 year old Orson Cardona On Wednesday July 13th and the 16 year old minor believed to be his accomplice were arraigned at the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court. The minor, whose identity we will not reveal, was charged for conspiracy to commit murder while 21 year old Juan Carlos Quintero better known as (Canicas) was charged for murder.

Quintero, we understand, is no stranger to the law and has been in and out of prison for several criminal accusations including robbery but has never been convicted. The minor on the other hand has no prior criminal record. Since a minor was charged today the public, including the media was not allowed inside the court to listen to the hearing which took approximately ten minutes. Since both the murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges are indictable and can only be heard at the Supreme Court no plea was taken from either of the accused. Both Quintero and the minor were remanded to the Kolbe Correctional Facility until their next Court date set for August 24th.

CTV3 News understands that more charges are expected to be levied against both men since they are also being investigated for the killing of 41 year old Chinese businessman Zhou Ang Tan who was murdered and robbed two days after Cardona’s death. The men we understand are also being investigated for a spate of robberies which occurred here in Orange Walk over the past weeks.
