The suspects in the murder of turtle protector Jairo Mora got into a fight with guards Monday afternoon at the cells of the Tribunales de Justicia in Limón.
The Judicial Investigating Organization, which provides security for the courts, said that when a jailer was taking the suspects to the afternoon session of the murder trial, one of the accused pushed and hit the judicial worker.
Other suspects joined in, said the Judicial Investigating Organization and other jailers had to intervene to quell the melee.
The judicial agency said that those involved will face another allegation of resistance to authority.
One of the suspects was treated for injuries, the agency said.
