A pregnant woman who was hospitalized for more than 10 days for severe burns died Wednesday at the San Roque de Gonnet hospital. The five-month-old baby died too. Everything indicates that it was a femicide: Juana Carolina Britez Rojas (34), she would have been stabbed by her partner, Isidoro Brizuela (26), who after attacking her tried to catch fire.
According to the reconstruction done by relatives, neighbors and justice, the woman – a Paraguayan merchant based in La Plata for almost two decades – tried to save the life of its aggressor and this caused serious injuries that cost her life.
The baby who was pregnant Britez Rojas kept the vital signs while her mother was convalescing. Doctors had to have an emergency cesarean, but the premature baby did not resist. Another tragedy caused by violence against women.
Everything happened on January 18 in a house of social complex that is in 115, between 514 and 515 (known as "The Mercadito"). According to the victim, when she was transported by ambulance to the health center, that night the couple had a strong argument. The reason: Brizuela's addiction to alcohol and the reactions he had when he was drunk.
After this incident, Brizuela was also hospitalized for the injuries caused by the fire. He died three days later.
From the story of Britez Rojas's relatives – who, in addition to working as an employee in a craft that does the housework – the relationship with the boyfriend and the child's father they expected was tempestuous. "We knew they had problems, but not that he hit her," admitted Gustavo Britez Rojas, the victim's brother.
Juana Carolina Britez Rojas died after agony for 13 days after her partner attacked her and set her on fire.
"We will never know what happened on that day of madness, but it was certainly a feminicide"The doctor lamented that doctors found that – in addition to having almost 30% of the body affected by burns – Juana had several cuts allegedly made with a knife.
The Paraguayan merchant has a daughter of 19 years. In his testimony before the court, he admitted that on December 31, after the celebrations for the end of the year, there was another episode of violence in the home. "Isidro came to the house and started kicking the doors and breaking things, I told my mother that I should leave because I would never go home again," said the girl. But the link remained.
The incident occurred two days after the disappearance and death of Gissella Solís Casas (47), the dentist who was missing 14 days ago and was found buried in the marginal forest area of Punta Lara, near Villa Elisa. The discovery happened on Tuesday and also in this case, his partner, Abel Casimiro Campos (54), who would have committed the crime, committed suicide in a hotel in the center of La Plata when police came to him for a statement. testimony
