By BBN Staff: The trial of three police officers attached to the San Pedro Police Formation for the 2016 death of Edwin Ixpatec began in the Supreme Court on Thursday.

Officers Romelio Logan, Joshimir Cobb and Reydel Teck appeared before Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft, charged jointly for manslaughter in a trial-without-jury.

The prosecution presented as many as six witnesses statements, and the main witness, a cashier from San Pedro, testified that she saw the three officers beating a man in the early hours of March 14, 2016. The witness testified that the officers were in uniform when they beat their victim and slammed him into the pan of a gold cart.

Upon cross-examination by attorney for the three officers, Oscar Selgado, the witness said that she was about 70 feet from where the alleged beating took place, but could not recognize the faces of the victim or the officers.

Reports are that Ixpatecwas being detained on the island in connection with an aggravated assault. The officers are accused of beating him severely and leaving him in the cell block at the police station without taking him for any medical attention until after he was found motionless in the cell, but by then he was already dead.

The trial is set to continue on Monday, July 26.
