By Aaron Humes: Police have announced that Alida Barrientos de Catzim, accused of stabbing her husband Romel Catzim to death following an argument at their San Pedro Town home, will not face charges – for now.
Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl-Lynn Vidal recommended not prosecuting the case for the time being in consultation with the Police Department. We understand that police investigations continue.
The Guatemalan woman claimed she acted in self-defense as he tried to enter their home late on Sunday evening.
The pair, who have a son together, were socializing and had an argument. Alida Catzim then went home, followed by Romel later on and they began to argue, after which she inflicted knife wounds to his back and chest.
