Accused San Joaquin killer, Arthur Tzul, charged

He was wanted by Corozal Police for last Thursday’s chopping murder of Amilcar Omar Morales Gonzalez and the attempted murder of Doniver Ruano, but on Monday, police formally arrested and charged Arthur Joel Tzul, a resident of San Joaquin Village for the murder of Gonzalez in the Corozal District. In the immediate aftermath of the chopping, thirty-three-year-old Tzul had evaded the arms of the police and it was believed that he had absconded across the border into Mexico. But he turned himself into police and was later charged. Gonzalez lost his life in a most horrific way. As he and Ruano hung out in front of the fiesta grounds in the village, they were attacked by a machete wielding assailant. Gonzalez was chopped to the head and neck and died on the spot, while Ruano was also cut on the neck, but survived the ordeal. It is believed that the murder was motivated by jealousy.
