Son Charged With Murder Following San Roman Killing

Olvin Rivas

There is a new development in a story we brought you from southern Belize on Wednesday. The eldest son of a man killed in San Roman village has been charged with his murder. Police arrested twenty-three year old Olvin Rivas after their investigations into the incident that occurred early Tuesday. A younger son told News Five their father, Amaya Salvador Rivas, had become violent with him and his older brother, Olvin, intervened, going after Rivas with a machete. He alleged there had been domestic violence in the home for some time, but the village chairman told News Five the mother and sons had been reluctant to report it to police.
