Guillermo Duarte, Charged for Murder, Gets Bail

Guillermo Duarte

Guillermo Duarte, through assistance from attorney Hurl Hamilton, today secured bail from the Supreme Court in the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars in the form of property papers. Duarte is charged with the murder of sixty-three-year-old Edgar Aldana, who was hacked with a machete by one of two men who showed up while Aldana and two friends were socializing at his house in Selena Village, Cayo in April of 2016.  One of Aldana’s friends was also attacked, but he survived.  The other escaped unscathed. Today, Justice Herbert Lord granted bail, but with conditions. Duarte is not to interfere with any prosecution witness, he is also to report to the San Ignacio Police Station three times a week and he was ordered to surrender all travel documents to the Registrar.  Failure to comply with all of these stipulations will result in revocation of his bail.
