Widow of Argentine Governor Sentenced to 18 Years for his Murder

BUENOS AIRES – The widow of Argentine politician Carlos Soria was sentenced Tuesday to 18 years in prison for murdering her husband.

Susana Freydoz was found guilty of aggravated homicide, the Judicial information Center reported.

During the trial, which began last month, the prosecution had requested life in prison for the accused.

Soria was governor of the southern province of Rio Negro.

The 61-year-old politician died in the early hours of Jan. 1 “from a single shot” to the left side of his face in the bedroom of his ranch in a rural area outside General Roca.

Police found the governor’s .38-caliber revolver, which was used to fire the fatal shot.

At trial, prosecutor Laura Perez said Freydoz’s actions were the result of the deterioration of a marriage in which husband and wife regularly engaged in violent verbal arguments and she put the murder within the context of the wife’s obsessive jealousy.

Rio Negro, which is in Patagonia and borders Chile, is now being governed by Alberto Weretilneck, who had served as lieutenant governor and belongs to the center-left Broad Front, an ally of Argentina’s governing Peronist Party. EFE
