Getting away with murder in Guatemala

What if you were accused of murdering your wife? What if you fled the country with both of your kids? What if your mother, a former Supreme Court judge, helped you cover up the evidence (including providing a vehicle for one of your buddies to dispose of your “better half”`s body)? What if your mom, while you`re nowhere to be found (as well as your kids) receives house arrest, after 17 months of being incarcerated (after posting bail for the equivalent of 1,400 dollars)?
