18 year old charged with Corozal killing

Story PictureA teenager has been arrested and charged in connection with last week’s murder of a Corozal man. According to investigators, eighteen year old Arlo Joseph Carter is the person who bludgeoned fifty-five year old Ernesto Riverol to death sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning. Concerned neighbours later discovered Riverol’s body in a pool of blood on the floor in his Third Street home. A post mortem subsequently determined cause of death as a brain haemorrhage brought on by repeated blows to the head with a blunt object. The suspected murder weapon, a length of two by two lumber, is being held by police as evidence. Carter appeared undefended before Magistrate Leslie Hamilton in Corozal Magistrates’ Court today where he was formally arraigned on the charge of murder. He has been remanded to Hattieville prison until November twenty-second. While a motive behind the crime is still unclear, police sources tell News Five that the accused was a frequent visitor to Riverol’s home.
