The sentence condemns the defendant to six months in prison for breach of sentence and 18 years in prison for murder, with the aggravating circumstance of kinship and the mitigating circumstance of confession, as well as to compensate the victim’s daughter with 250,000 euros, in addition to the payment of court costs.

He is also sentenced to probation for the ten years following which he serves the prison sentence, without being able to communicate or approach his victim’s daughter, who was 18 years old at the time of the crime.

It is the same sentence that the prosecutor had requested, the accusation brought by the victim’s daughter, the popular accusation of the Canarian Institute of Equality and the defendant’s defense.

The defendant has been in prison since July 20, 2020 and his prison term has been extended for another two years in an order dated July 7.

In the first session of the trial, the defendant had admitted that he killed his former partner by performing a “mataleón” key on her and that he then called several family members and friends to dispose of the body.

He showed them the body and none helped him, except for one whom he convinced by offering him cocaine and money to help clean up the crime scene.

José Miguel QT explained that the victim had gone to see him at his house at night, to avoid the surveillance of the Civil Guard because he had a restraining order in force after being convicted of assaulting her.

They were both consuming “cocaine, trankimazines and a lot of beer”, and at one point they argued and he, who does “more or less” martial arts, performed an immobilization maneuver on her back, pressing her neck, knowing that she was not she could defend herself and that she could suffocate her, as it happened.
