All seven men — with the last names Aráuz, Cash, Centeno, Delgado, Quesada and two brothers with the last name Salmón — were charged with homicide, two counts of sexual abuse and four counts of kidnapping. Four of the defendants — the older Salmón, Quesada, Centeno and Cash — also were charged with rape in a separate incident.
A woman with the last name Delgado, who was in possession of Mora’s cellphone during a police raid in July, was charged with possession of stolen property.
Now that formal charges have been filed, a trial date will be set in coming months. The Limón Prosecutor’s Office has requested the trial be public.
