LUGO, 17 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Second Section of the Provincial Audience of Lugo has sentenced Ana Sandamil to a revisable permanent prison sentence for the assinato of her daughter, Desirée Leal, in Muimenta --Cospeito--, in the early hours of May 3, 2019.
After the popular jury found her guilty of killing the minor "in an intentional and premeditated way" by suffocation after giving her sedatives, the Court has once again imposed the maximum sentence as it had done a year ago after a trial that later annulled the Superior Court of Xustiza de Galicia (TSXG).
The president of the court that issued the ruling, against which an appeal is still possible, stresses that the facts are considered a murder and not a simple homicide because, "as the jury rightly indicated, the mother was, as such, the guarantor of that nothing bad happened to the girl and that, by sleeping together, the girl would feel protected from any kind of danger that might happen to her".
