GPD arrested Peter Gines Thursday afternoon and charged him with attempted murder.
Guam- While the Guam Police Department has identified a third suspect in the prison beating of Justin Meno, the Attorney General’s Office has not yet formally charged the suspect.
It was Thursday afternoon when GPD Spokesman Officer Paul Tapao issued a release stating that a follow-up investigation into the beating of Department of Corrections inmate Justin Meno resulted in a third arrest.
Peter John Gines, 32, was arrested for attempted murder, aggravated assault and conspiracy.
While Gines was booked and re-confined, he has yet to be formally charged by the AG’s Office. Instead he has been issued a notice to appear in 2020 which means the AG’s office will have until then to charge him in relation to this crime.
Two other inmates have been charged by the AG’s office with attempted murder–Jeremiah Isezaki and Albert Babauta Santos. Isezaki has pleaded not guilty while Santos is scheduled to be arraigned next week.
