Who is Maria Ixel Amador?

This is the first image of a British man shot dead in front of his eight-year-old son by his wife in Costa Rica after she claims he tried to “scare” him.

Yacht salesman Christopher Benjamin Martin, 43, died of a single gunshot wound after arguing with his Nicaraguan wife, who was named Maria Ixel Amador, 36.

Local reports said the couple had been drinking all day at their apartment in Alajuela, northwest of the Costa Rican capital of San José, when the incident occurred last Sunday while their eight-year-old son Marlin was nearby.

A media outlet claimed that the couple had been arguing more and more in recent weeks and that last month Amador had also stabbed him during a violent fight.

A police spokesman told local media: “The woman says she shot him just to scare him, she hit him in the right shoulder and he died at the scene.”

Paramedic Mario Zúñiga said: “Upon our arrival we confirmed that the man had a gunshot wound to the chest and no vital signs, that’s when we called the police.”

Pictures on a Facebook page called Marlin and Chris showed him and his son enjoying his 42nd birthday party and his young son’s graduation from school.

Mr. Martin and his wife met ten years ago and moved into his apartment in Alajuela in May from nearby Herradura and he worked there for Landon Marina selling yachts.

Colleague Derek Boccara wrote a tribute on Facebook and said: ‘Sad. I really liked Chris Funny and genuine. A great loss. Crazy life. This is fucked. How can you do that. In front of his son. Seriously ? I have a hard time with this. He was a friend. We are all shocked. May he rest in peace now. Poor guy.’

Images published by Costa Rican media showed a body covered in a white sheet with seeping blood as it was loaded into the back of a pickup truck.

A relative of Mr. Martin, Toni Michelle Lee, wrote on social media: ‘Please pray for my oldest son Gavin and his father’s side of the family. Gavin’s uncle Chris was taken from us on Sunday.

‘Please send love and prayers to the family to guide them through this difficult time. Please keep her mother in her heart as she heads to Costa Rica to bury her son.”

No one was immediately available for comment today from the OIJ, the Office of the Judicial Investigator in San José.
