Mario Aguirre, wanted by police for the stabbing murder of fifty three year old San Roman Resident Marcelino Chan, was escorted to the Orange Walk police station by his lawyer over the weekend. He was being sought in connection with the murder of Chan which played out on Saturday February 25th in the village of San Roman in the Orange Walk District. Chan was stabbed multiple times to the body after he tried to intervene in a dispute between Aguirre and a female companion. Aguirre promptly escaped the scene of the incident after fatally injuring Chan and wounding another villager who tried to assist.
Following several weeks of hiding, Aguirre is now in police custody and has been charged with the crime of murder and awaits a court hearing at the Orange Walk Chapter of the Supreme Court.
