Updated: December 15, 2015

Corozal Police have charged one man for murder. He is twenty nine year old Adan Meza and he stands accused of killing twenty two year old Alberto Briceno on Saturday night in Paraiso Village. Meza is accused of stabbing Briceno six times while they were at the village’s park socializing. Initially, police had two men detained but  released the other since no charge could have been levied against him. Adan Meza is now behind bars waiting for his next court date. Police have still not established the motive for the murder but those who witnessed the fatal stabbing told us that a fight broke out between Briceno and the two men over a misunderstanding. That is when Meza allegedly took out a knife and began stabbing Briceno to death.
