The link between Agustina and Pablo Parra: the young woman’s mother did not trust him

The point that generated the most debate since the attack was the relationship between Agustina and Pablo Parra. For the accusers, there was a pre-existing relationship between the couple and that is why the legal classification was femicide but with the aggravating circumstance of that section, the first of article 80 of the Penal Code.
