By Aaron Humes: Eight years after a drunken encounter in the village of Selena, Cayo District, just outside Spanish Lookout, two men were convicted of the murder of resident Edgar Aldana.

According to police, Marlon Padilla and Guillermo Duarte were both found guilty of murder in the Belmopan High Court. They were both sentenced to life imprisonment by High Court Justice Francis Cumberbatch and will be eligible for parole after 25 years.

On April 2, 2016, in Selena Village, Cayo District, Aldana and a friend were at home drinking when two men arrived. One of them pulled out a machete and chopped Aldana and his friend in the head. Aldana bled out and died on the spot, while his friend survived.

Padilla was picked up a year later and charged along with Duarte.
