One shot, one stabbed in Cayo killings

Belize City police were not the only cops with their hands full. In Cayo authorities were also busy trying to solve a pair of murders in that district. The first occurred on Saturday in San Ignacio in which thirty-one year old security guard Abelino Choc was shot in the chest. Choc died while undergoing treatment at the San Ignacio Hospital, but before losing consciousness he identified Darwin Mendez as his assailant. Mendez has since been arrested and charged with murder.

Later that night in Georgeville a man was stabbed to death following an argument at a bar. Twenty-five year old Mario Hernandez Junior died at the San Ignacio Hospital after he was knifed by a fellow patron. There are conflicting reports regarding the killer’s identity, but police have yet to make an arrest.
