As we told you yesterday, three men were charged for the murder of well known Orange Walk business man Ramon Cervantes Sr. They are 28 year old Matteo Pott, 19 year old Angel Cardinez and 22 year old Noe Gonzalez all of Trial Farm Village. There was an upheaval as the crowd of onlookers, who had been waiting patiently to catch a glimpse of these alleged criminals, jeered at the three men when they were paraded down to the magistrates courtroom to have their murder charges read. The three men were also charged for an unlicensed 12 gauge shotgun and 4 unlicensed 12 gauge shells.
Manuel Castillo, who is believed to be the ringleader and the master mind behind the murder and abduction of Ramon Cervantes Sr. was named on the charge sheet though he was not present. He is believed to have absconded to somewhere across the Northern border. [MEN PICS 2]Today at around 11:30 this morning the three men were taken to the Magistrates court again to receive additional charges of kidnapping. We understand that all other detained persons in this case were released today. Matteo Pott, Angel Cardinez and Noe Gonzalez have all been remanded to prison until August 13.
