Convicted Murderer Sentenced to Life Behind Bars is Freed

Nicolas Guevara

Sixty-year-old Salvadoran National Nicolas Guevara is a free man tonight. He had been charged, convicted and sentenced for the murder of thirty-six-year-old Marcus Antonio Tzul. He was sentenced to life in prison on December 1993. His sentence was reduced this morning to twenty-five years by Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin but because Guevara had served for more than twenty-five years, he was released. Tzul was shot and killed on November fourth, 1992 at Gold Button Ranch in Orange Walk which he managed. He was in a car with a female coworker returning to the ranch when they were ambushed by three armed men dressed in camouflage clothing. The prosecution main witness was the coworker who recounted the entire ordeal. Guevara was represented by Iliana Swift and the crown was represented by Counsel Sheringe Rodriguez.
