Yo Creek man gets life sentence for murder

Posted: Thursday, October 5, 2017. 8:44 am CST.


By BBN Staff: Yo Creek resident, Edwin Hernan Castillo, was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday.

He appeared before Justice Herbert Lord where he was found guilty of the 2012 murder of Javier Ack, his friend, who he was drinking with when an argument ensued and he stabbed him in the heart.

Castillo was handed down a sentence of 25 years. He will serve 19 years in prison before he can apply for parole.

Changes in legislation had made it possible for those sentenced to life can qualify for parole.

Castillo was represented by Attorney Oscar Selgado.
