Edwin Castillo Convicted for Yo Creek Murder

Javier Ack

In the Orange Walk Supreme Court before Justice Herbert Lord, Edwin Castillo was convicted for the murder of his friend Javier Ack. The incident occurred back in mid-June 2012 in the village of Yo Creek. Both young men were friends but on that fatal day, following an argument while they socialized under a lime tree at the property of a family member, Castillo used a machete to inflict the deadly stab wounds on the left side of his chest and behind Ack’s left ear. Castillo was found guilty and sentenced to twenty-five years behind bars on Wednesday. When he has completed nineteen years in prison, he will be able to apply for parole due to amendments to legislation.
