This morning forty year old Saul Reyes and forty seven year old Juan Orellana appeared at the Orange Walk Magistrates Court where they were arraigned for the murder of twenty one year old Adiel Mojica. No pleas were taken from them today reason being that the offence is an indictable one and requires trial by a judge and jury, therefore, both men were remanded to the Hattieville prison.
Reyes and Orellana are being accused of inflicting stab wounds on Adiel Mojica on the night of Saturday April 1st 2017 as a result of an altercation that ensued at a bar in the San Felipe Village. Mojica was then transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City where he succumbed to his injuries in the wee hours of Monday morning.
The matter has been adjourned for next month on the 10th of May 2017.
