Castillo was fatally stabbed outside a club in Belmopan during a fight. Sentencing for the Hydes will take place on December thirtieth. Dennis Hyde and Delvin Galvez were represented by attorney Lutchman Sukhnandan; Clifford Hyde by Attorney Ellis Arnold, while Russel Hyde was defended by attorney Dickie Bradley.
