“This is part of an attempted murder,” said lawyer Roberto Castillo, representative of the complainant, to the ‘TyC Sports’ channel.

I am in contact with the Lomas courts to see which prosecutor’s office is involved. We have audio materials that were impossible to carry because of the weight. And videos and photos that support the extremes that she invokes in her complaint.
“There is plenty of evidence to even reach a conviction: it is an extremely serious crime that has to be repaired with the victim”concluded the lawyer.
