The widow of Alfredo Ogando and the mother of four of her children stated that she and the children were not well and “separated from everything.” Especially the elderly (the fourth is a child born last year), who received therapy to try to overcome the facts. In her statement, she admitted that she knew the main accused since the pandemic when she went to the family home to “pick up packages” regarding her husband’s business. In those months of 2020, he was alone in Pamplona with the children because the victim was in the Dominican Republic.
Marriage, he maintained, maintains good relations, and if they break up, they will just marry Ogando’s true identity. She denied that the accused and she, during the trips and absence of her husband, maintained a romantic relationship, although she admitted that they slept together at one time (“I regret it and I will regret it for the rest of my life”). He explained that he considered the defendant “a friend.” After the events and before the trial began, he called her from prison on his cell phone and asked her to forgive him, which she reported to the Foral Police.
He was especially violent toward the accused, who was married at the time of the stabbing. “I don’t have a relationship with him. He dedicated himself to slandering me everywhere, in the Dominican community, in the newspapers… Even when she traveled to the Dominican Republic to ask her husband to turn himself in, they uploaded videos of the two of them making fun of each other in a nightclub, calling me a widow, the widow, and at the same time as men kill each other for him in Pamplona.” He admitted that he was aware of the defendants’ proposal to allocate 6,000 euros as compensation for damages, in addition to a payment of 2,000 euros per month, but described it as a “mockery.”
