The Supreme Court confirmed the conviction of 34 years in prison that the Court of Zaragoza imposed on the couple formed by the Venezuelan Hedangeline Candy Arrieta and the Moroccan Mohammed Achraf for the kidnapping, robbery and murder of the Basque businessman José Antonio Delgado Fresnedo (54 years old), where it was baptized as a crime on Badoo, because this social network they used to contact the victim and lure him to Zaragoza. Those investigated first appealed the decision to the Superior Court of Justice of Aragon (TSJA), which rejected their request to repeat the trial. Therefore, the decision issued today is final.
The proved facts section of the first sentence, which has now been approved by the high court, said that the convicted person had contacted Badoo on the victim, a resident of Getxo (Vizcaya), and he was summoned to an appointment on September 6, 2019 in Luceni. What he cannot imagine is that this woman, 36, and her boyfriend, 38, are preparing a deadly ambush for him. And after three days of torture based on beatings and electric shocks, when they got the security keys of their bank cards, their captors decided to bury the victim alive. Almost three weeks would pass until the Civil Guard found his body in an open field called Lobo ravine.
The defendants lured the victim through Badoo with the intention of enriching themselves, so they took care to seize anything of value from him: from the red Mercedes Benz he drove to Zaragoza and they sold when the owner is still there. die, until his alliance. Little effort was devoted to digging the grave in which they buried him, leaving the body almost at ground level.. When on the autopsy table, forensic experts discovered that the deceased had traces of dirt in the pharynx, larynx, esophagus and stomach, which they described as “a clear symptom of an attempt to survive.”
The Supreme Court today confirmed the conviction for the crimes of murder, illegal competition robbery with violence and fraud, for the sale of Mercedes. In addition, they must jointly pay compensation of 185,000 euros to the victim’s son, 50,000 to his parents and 19,000 to his siblings, as well as 11,000 to the person affected by the scam.
The Supreme Court emphasized the overwhelming evidence of “highly incriminating significance” that determined the convictions, as well as the jury’s motivation, “exceeded the standard of sufficiency required by law” and considered that. The TSJA’s decision contained “an eloquent, logical and reasonable explanation of the authorship of the two defendants.”
Two more convictions
As for the accused – who broke off their relationship after these events and who came to accuse each other of what happened – There were two other sentences for luring two other men through Badoo to attack and rob them. Fortunately, these two victims were injured but did not lose their lives. Therefore, the Venezuelan woman and the Moroccan woman have accumulated three convictions totaling 56 years and 9 months in prison. All three were upheld by the TSJA and later challenged by the Supreme Court, which has since begun accepting decisions.
