Charged for Killing Her Sister; Isela Cano Out on Bail

Isela Cano

On Monday, Isela Cano was charged and arraigned for the manslaughter of her sister, twenty-six-year-old Honduran national Keidi Ramirez. It is believed that Cano and her parents restrained Ramirez during a drunken fit last Wednesday and she died in the process.  Cano was not charged with murder and there seems to be a misunderstanding as to why since the D.P.P., Cheryl-Lynn Vidal, has said that she had not given instructions for the manslaughter charge. Her attorney, Hurl Hamilton, told News Five today that his client is out on a ten thousand dollar bail.

Hurl Hamilton, Attorney

“Miss Cano was not charged for murder. We want to make that clear; she was charged for manslaughter and manslaughter is a bailable offense at the magistrate’s court level. If the magistrate decides to exercise his or her discretion, bail can be granted for manslaughter; there is no restriction. So Miss Cano was granted bail in the sum of ten thousand dollars and she is to surrender her travel documents to the clerk of court at Independence. I haven’t gotten full instructions from my client as yet, but there was an incident at the home. I can’t say more than that. There was an incident and somebody has died; whether that amounts to anything in law, we don’t know. But I haven’t gotten full instructions from my client.”

“So your client is claiming innocence? That she did not participate in this act of restraining her sister? That she is not responsible for her death?”

 

Hurl Hamilton

“Yes that is exactly. My client is claiming her innocence in the matter and it’s a court of law to vindicate her in the future.”

 

Cano returns to court on February twenty-second, 2019
