D.P.P. appealing case of murdered teacher

Hilberto Hernandez

Javier Castillo, a former teacher from Escuela Mexico who was also once elected as U.D.P. Councilor to the Corozal Town Council was savagely murdered in October 2009 and Hilberto Hernandez from the village of San Narciso was initially charged with Murder. But during trial on November fourteenth of this year, Hernandez pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of Manslaughter. He was sentenced to ten years in prison by Corozal Supreme Court Judge, Denis Hanomansingh. But it is not quite over year as the office of director of public prosecution is appealing the lenient sentencing.  Castillo was killed at his home in Corozal between the second and third of October, 2009. He was stabbed twice on the abdomen before he was strangled with the cord from a fan.
