Woman’s throat cut when she refused to lend man money

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Aug. 20, 2020– A Guatemalan construction worker, Santos Edwardo Lopez Zepeda, 25, of a Belize City address, was charged for attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, and harm.

The charges are in connection with an incident that occurred on Monday, August 17. The victim, Rosa Chincilla, 59, was found with a cut wound in her throat at her residence on Lindo’s Alley.

It appeared that Chincilla was visited by a man she knew, Santos Edwardo Lopez Zepeda, who asked her to lend him money.

Chincilla refused, and that was when, police believe, Zepeda cut her throat. Her cries for help were heard by her neighbor.

Chinchia was reportedly rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a critical condition.
