Fictitious Marriage charges for Belmopan man

In December 2014 we told you of a Roaring Creek man who was charged for bigamy. Now there is a similar case to report on.

On Monday January 5th, the wife of one Mario Antonio Cano, 27 year old resident of San Martin Area Belmopan,  reported to police that her husband had married another woman in 2006, prior to her and had never been divorced. She told police she got married to Mario Cano without her knowledge of the first wife. It was only recently that she found out of his deceit.

Upon making investigations, it was revealed that 27 year old Mario Cano was indeed married twice. Mario Antonio Cano was arrested and charged for the offence of “fictitious marriage.”

He appeared on Wednesday morning at  the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court, where he was read his charge and then granted bail in the sum of $2,000 plus one surety. His case returns to court on March 4th 2015.
