The Criminal Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) has confirmed the sentence of 14 years and 11 months in prison for the crime of attempted murder of an individual who stabbed his partner 27 times in front of his two children when she told him that she was going to leave him.
The events occurred in May 2020 in the Miramar neighborhood, in the Ofra area, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The victim informed the defendant of her decision to end the relationship that he then had with the aggressor and he took a knife from the kitchen and committed the brutal aggression.
This occurred in front of the victim’s three children, two 8-year-old boys and a 7-year-old girl, and at the family home, a rental home. After the stabbing, the aggressor fled the scene and the Local Police found him inside his vehicle after conducting a raid around the area, arresting him and transferring him to a hospital for review.
The woman suffered quite serious stab wounds and remained hospitalized for several days at the Nuestra Señora de Candelaria University Hospital. Her children were then left in the care of the Emergency Device for Assaulted Women (DEMA) and relatives, who reported that they were not aware of any prior complaints by the victim against her partner.
