Man to plead guilty to shooting wife


A 50-year-old man who allegedly shot his wife several times will plead guilty to the charges against him.

A change of plea hearing was supposed to be held yesterday for 50-year-old Norbert Blas Camacho for allegedly shooting his wife in December 2017. The hearing was moved to Nov. 1, 2018.

After pleading guilty, Camacho will be subjected to an assessment by the Commonwealth Guidance Center and shall submit to examinations and will participate in courses of treatment, including drug and substance abuse treatment.

Camacho will also pay restitution.

He will also not be allowed to patronize bars or places where alcohol is served. Camacho is also prohibited from consuming any alcoholic drinks.

Camacho will also be required to submit to random blood tests, urine tests, breath tests, or similar test to monitor his compliance.

Camacho is mandated to follow all local and federal laws and failure to comply with all the conditions of his probation will result in revocation of his probation.

During his preliminary hearing back in December, Camacho was charged with attempted first-degree murder (domestic violence), aggravated assault and battery (domestic violence), assault with a dangerous weapon (domestic violence), and disturbing the peace (domestic violence).

According to Saipan Tribune archives, Camacho was arrested for allegedly shooting his wife with a rifle following an argument inside their house along Anonas Drive in Kagman back in December 2017.
