Canadian man charged with homicide to remain in Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. – A Canadian man, who is being charged in the death of his girlfriend, has been given a two year preventative imprisonment sentence in a Cancun court.

The State Attorney’s Office in Cancun reported that during the initial hearing last week, the presiding judge found sufficient evidence to charge the man with aggravated homicide. The Canadian man has been identified by local media as 33-year-old Michael Kaleta. Kaleta is being charged in the death of his 23-year-old girlfriend Gabriela Janeth Jaramillo of Saltillo, Coahuila (Mexico).

Jaramillo was found beaten, lying on the floor of her hotel room at Gran Caribe Resort at kilometer 11 of the Cancun Hotel Zone April 22. She had arrived at the hotel April 19 to say with her boyfriend.

Evidence produced by the prosecutor’s office will see Kaleta held for two years in a local prison instead of being released to Canada while he awaits his Cancun trial. Kaleta is reportedly from the Toronto area.
