Thelma Warrior, 50, arraigned for murder

BULLET TREE FALLS, Cayo District, Wed. June 26, 2019– A love triangle claimed the life of Yolanda Requeña, 47, a janitor of the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court and mother of 4 children, at about 8:30 Sunday night in Bullet Tree Falls Village. A woman, Thelma Warrior, 50, is accused of stabbing Requeña to death.

After the murder, Warrior went on the run, but she was arrested yesterday in the Cayo District and charged with murder and use of deadly means of harm at the San Ignacio Police Station. Today, Wednesday, June 26, she was arraigned at the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court and was remanded until August 27.

The deadly confrontation between the women occurred at the Warrior family’s farmhouse in Bullet Tree Falls on Sunday night. Reliable information is that Requeña was called to bring food for Mr. Warrior, Thelma’s husband, with whom she was reportedly having a relationship.

On Requeña’s arrival at the house with the food, Thelma Warrior came out and the women got into a quarrel, during which it is alleged that Warrior stabbed Requena in the left breast. Warrior then fled the area.

Requeña was rushed to the San Ignacio Hospital, but she was declared dead on arrival.

Those who knew Requeña said that she was a friendly and jovial person.
