He stabbed 3 members of the Uck Family

On Wednesday, fifty-year old Jose Hernan Ochaeta, a resident of Cayo was convicted on one of three counts of attempted murder in the stabbing of eighty five year old Ignacio Lucero Senior, Hilda Lucero and thirty-six year old Evangelina Lucero Uck. The jury, who deliberated for over an hour, unanimously announced that Ochaeta was found guilty only of the attempted murder of Lucero Uck, who was married to one of Lucero’s son. Ochaeta’s sentencing has been deferred to May ninth in the Belmopan Supreme Court before Justice Troadio Gonzalez where a mitigation plea will be heard before Ochaeta is sentenced. It is alleged that on May twenty-eight, the Lucero family was at home when Ochaeta, armed with a knife and a machete, attacked them. Ignacio Lucero was stabbed once to the left arm; Hilda Lucero was stabbed four times to the abdomen and Evangelina Lucero Uck was stabbed multiple times to the wrist, back, face and left breast area. Ochaeta was represented by attorneys Ellis Arnold and Simeon Sampson.

    If Ochaeta didn’t stab the other two victims, who does the jury think did it, a pixie?

    Attempted murder involves EXACTLY the same evil as actual murder, so it must be punished severely. If the judge cannot stretch his neck, at least let him die in prison.

    Once all of the violent offenders are hanged or locked up, Belize will be a pretty wonderful place again.

    HAVE ANY BODY WONDER WHY HE CHOP THAT FAMILY?
    THESE PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN THE OCHAETA FAMILY A HARD TIME, THEY REFUSE FOR THE OCHAETAS TO SEE THIER OWN GRANDCHILD
    COMMON PEOPLE THE OCHAETAS HAVE RIGHTS TOO!!!
    MANY TIMES WE LISTEN ONE SIDE OF THE STORY, THIS IN ONE TIME WE SHOULD HEAR THE OCHAETAS SIDE, THEN YOU GUYS WILL UNDERSTAND WHY HE REACTED LIKE THIS.

    I WISH THE LUCEROS WOULD MAKE PEACE WITH THE OCHAETAS FOR THE SAKE OF THE GRAND CHILD!!!
    DENYING THE RIGHT FOR THE CHILD TO KNOW HIS MATERNAL GRAND PARENTS IS A FORM OF CHILD ABUSE.

    SO SAD WHEN OCHAETA DAUGHTER DIED, EVERYTHING JUST CHANGE, ITS HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHY THE FATHER REFUSE TO LET THE CHILD HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS MATERNAL GRAN PARENTS WHO ARE THE OCHAETAS, THEY LOVED THE BABY AND STILL DOES.

    So drose I guess what ur saying is that what he did is justifiable because they have “old beef”. Thats why the country is where it is right now. Some things you cant change, GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!!!

    Hey Storm… I agree with you because of the stabbing Hilda Lucero does not have a normal life again she can hardly walk, As for Mrs. Uck well her hands does not function the way it should because of all the stabbing that was done to her. NO BODY need to live this in their life being stab and seeing how some one else stabs your parents or daughter!! This is un acceptable SO HE GOT WAT HE DESERVE!!!

    DROSE FLOWER… I agree with Xtasy GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!!! That was what the Lucero and UCk family had to do… HAHAH YOUR QUESTIONS DOES NOT WORTH ANY THING “HAVE ANY BODY WONDER WHY HE CHOP THAT FAMILY?” As an educated aged Man and a teacher HE would have know that stabbing 3 persons was not the right way to settle the problem… and PLEASE KEEP IN MIND HE WAS FOUND GUILTY BECAUSE HE WAS!! NOW how could the LUcero family trust him as a grandfather to their grandson if he was able to stab 3 innocent person he is incapable to take care and teach his grandson good moral values of LIFE !!! FYI – we already have a lot of crime in Belize and we don’t need to have our young children learning from persons in their live that should be good role models.. AND i see that the LUCERO family is doing a good job raising that child!!!

    HAVE the LUCERO ever did any thing wrong to the OCHAETAs Family!! The ANSWER would be NO so after this incident do you think they can trust the Ochaetas family a bit?????? AND yes nobody wants their child to die and yes it was hard BUT He did wat he did and because of this he will more not be able to be close or even see his grandson… but trust me hes grandson knows his maternal gran parents…

    drose flowers: It’s good to know the back story here, but if that is the situation, then Orchaeta made it infinitely worse. He goes to prison, and the family will be MORE alienated, not less.

    Civilized people need to be able to handle all personal problems with wisdom, not violence.

    Even if the child is deprived a relationship with his mother’s family now — normally not a good thing, I agree — it was possible that the child would seek a stronger relationship on his own in the future, after reaching adulthood.

    My guess is Orchaeta’s bad judgment was fueled with alcohol, to make things worse.
