THREE people who killed a woman in Oviedo in 2009 have been sentenced to prison terms amounting to more than 200 years.
The killer has been sentenced to 99 years in prison for murder, habitual abuse, sexual assault and disrespecting the dead, amongst other charges. Both of the other men, one of them the killer’s brother, have been sentenced to more than 30 years in prison.
The three men lived with the victim, aged 34, and her mother, both of whom were mentally retarded and disabled. A girl under 18 and her baby also lived in the apartment. She was the killer’s girlfriend and was sentenced to 10 years in a centre for delinquents, as she was considered to have pushed the others into committing the crime.
The events took place in June 2009, when the three men beat the disabled victim and strangled her, forcing her to drink a bottle of whisky. The following day they decided to separate her flesh from her bones and feed it to some dogs.
They then got her mentally retarded brother, who on previous occasions they had forced to take part in sexually abusing the victim, to help put the body parts in the freezer.
The following day, all the inhabitants of the apartment, including the minor and her baby, went to see a flat which was available to rent, and sold the victim’s jewellery.
With the money they obtained, they went for a meal at a fast-food restaurant.
The later decided to tell the killer’s parents, but blamed the victim’s brother. The parents went to the police.
