Two charged in beheading murder of Hilton Wade

Raphael Mencias

A duo suspected of having participated in the gruesome decapitation of fifty-six-year-old Hilton Wade, in Cotton Tree Village on Wednesday, has been charged with murder.  Wade’s alleged killers are also from the same community where he has been residing for quite some time.  In fact, it is reported that the rummager had come under threat recently by a pair of men, purportedly twenty-nine-year-old Raphael Mencias and thirty-six-year-old Elroy Grinage.   Wade was stabbed as many as twenty-six times to various parts of the body, before being guillotined by his attackers.  In a most sinister act of murder, his severed head was then put on display under a crude bus shed a distance from where his mutilated body was later discovered.  His residence, an abandoned property where he had been living for the better part of a year, had also been torched.  Earlier today, Raphael Mencias was charged with murder, while Elroy Grinage was charged with abetment and conspiracy to commit murder and arraigned before the Belmopan Magistrate‘s Court.  Both men have been remanded to the Belize Central Prison until March second, 2018.
