SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Aug. 1 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The head of the Court of Violence against Women of Santa Cruz de Tenerife has decreed today, Monday, the entry into provisional prison, communicated and without bail, of the man arrested last Friday for the murder of his ex-partner, Abigail González, in a central street of the capital of Tenerife
The magistrate imputes a crime of murder to the person under investigation, who in his possible relationship with the death of his ex-partner has availed himself of his right not to testify, according to sources from the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC).
The events occurred last Friday, shortly before three in the afternoon, when the 1-1-2 operating room received an alert informing that a 34-year-old woman had been stabbed in the doorway of a building in Alfaro street and was seriously injured.
A medicalized ambulance and another basic life support ambulance from the Canary Emergency Service (SUC) immediately attended the scene, as well as a doctor and a nurse from the Doctor Guigou Health Center, which is located a few meters from the scene.
The SUC staff, in collaboration with the doctor and the nurse, verified that the affected woman had various serious stab wounds, so after stabilizing her, they evacuated her by ambulance to the Hospital Universitario Nuestra Señora de Candelaria, where she finally died.
Agents of the Local Police also appeared at the scene of the incident, who collaborated with the intervening resources, as well as members of the National Police, who took charge of the investigation of the events.
Thanks to the information provided by several witnesses to the events, the alleged murderer fled the scene in a vehicle that was located in the Chamberí neighborhood. Apparently, the man had taken refuge in his home, where he was arrested.
The Government Delegation against Gender Violence has confirmed this murder as a sexist crime. The victim had no minor sons or daughters. There were also no previous complaints of gender-based violence against the alleged aggressor. The number of women killed by gender violence in Spain amounts to 26 in 2022 and 1,156 since 2003.
