All three woman accused of involvement in the murder of the president of León’s provincial government have been found guilty.
Isabel Carrasco, aged 59, died on May 12, 2014, after being shot three times in the head when she was on her way to work at the Partido Popular offices in the city. The murder took place in broad daylight on a public footbridge.
Following a four-week trial, the jury took three days to return their unanimous verdicts of premeditated murder “caused by hatred” on 56-year-old Montserrat González and her 35-year-old daughter Triana Martínez. They also declared a local police officer, 42-year-old Raquel Gago, guilty by a majority vote of seven to two. All three were also found guilty of the illegal possession of a firearm.
