The judges of Chamber III of the Trial Court acquitted Rita Milagros Coronel (35) of the crime of qualified homicide, by applying the benefit of the doubt. The immediate release of the accused was ordered.

The woman had come to trial accused of an event that occurred on June 7, 2019 in a precarious home in Villa Lavalle, where a man died from carbon monoxide poisoning and subsequent calcination in the context of a fire.

The court was made up of judges Carolina Sanguedolce (president), Pablo Farah and María Gabriela González (members). Prosecutor Ramiro Ramos Ossorio intervened for the Public Ministry. The defense was in charge of Jorge Bonetto.

The burned man’s daughter was the one who filed the complaint. In her testimony, the woman said that on the 7th she was at home having mate with two friends when her father arrived, in a hurry, looking for 50 pesos that belonged to his partner, Rita Coronel, who at that moment shouted from outside the house: ” Remember that he who laughs last, laughs best”, and he left.

Then, Coronel returned and they went to the back to play cards, “she had a bottle,” the man’s daughter recalled, adding that he used to get drunk but that that day she had seen him lucid. He said that she went to her room and, at around 10 p.m., her father came over to let him know that he would accompany Rita to her house and took a candle because the accused did not have electricity.
