By Aaron Humes: 48-year-old Raymundo Castellanos, a Belizean fisherman of Riversdale Community, Stann Creek District, has been charged with arson of a relative’s house in the community located along the Placencia Peninsula.
According to Zulma Aguirre, a hotel manager, she was informed of the fire while at work on Thursday morning. She told police that she had been receiving threats from a family member that he would burn down the house.
