By BBN Staff: The trial of San Pedro businessman, 32-year-old David Gonzales, who is accused of murdering his 28-year-old wife, Marisela Gonzales, officially began in the Supreme Court this week.
The case management conference (CMC) was held on Thursday, before Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft. At the conference, the prosecution noted that there will be at least 42 witness statements presented as evidence, which may take case management some time to conclude.
The CMC was adjourned and will reconvene on September 29.
On Monday, October 12, 2020, police found the victim’s partially nude body near the dumpsite in San Pedro, with a gunshot wound to the head.
Officers detained Gonzales and seized his licensed .9mm pistol, which had seven live rounds in the magazine. He told officers that he and his wife had an argument the night before on their way home and she exited the golf cart they were driving. He maintains that he never saw her again after that. Investigators later found a blood stain on one of his calves and his pistol also had a blood stain on it.
Police also received information that Gonzales was seen around 10:00 a.m. that day, throwing a bag in a garbage bin on Angel Coral Street, San Pedro Town.
Police searched the bin and found a black plastic bag which contained 2 short pants; 3 T-shirts, 3 boxers and 3 towels, all soaked in blood.
