A Teenager is Arraigned for the Manslaughter of Ana Villanueva

Zena Armstrong

Nineteen-year-old Zena Armstrong is out on bail tonight, following the stabbing death of Ana Villanueva in Corozal Town over the weekend. Armstrong was arraigned for one count of manslaughter, for which she pleaded not guilty and was given bail of eight thousand dollars. On Sunday night, the young women were involved in a fight during which Armstrong later pulled out a knife and stabbed Villanueva once to the chest. A post-mortem examination certified that the nineteen-year-old girl died as a result of hypovolemic shock due to a stab wound to the left ventricle of the heart. Villanueva and Armstrong had a history of conflict; but on May twelfth, it ended in tragedy. Armstrong, who lives several houses away, was apprehended by police shortly after and the bloody knife was later retrieved.
