Ivet was 25 years old and an employee of a Clarel. Diego was 33 years old, he was of Ecuadorian origin and, intermittently, he worked in the kitchen of a pizzeria.

Even so, she blames herself for not believing that he would go so far. “He was a loudmouth, one of the who talk a lot”, she remembers now, tormented.

Ivet separated from Diego five or six months ago after more than seven years together. But she was still fond of him and, although after her breakup she lived at another sister’s house, she continued to go to her old flat for some time at first. During those visits, the fights that the neighbors heard through the walls possibly broke out. Some were so worrying that they ended up calling the police.

Lately Ivet had begun to rebuild her life. And Diego was aware. As he also learned that Ivet had finally denounced him and that on Monday they were summoned to attend a speedy trial. Claudia says that Ivet called Diego the night before to ask him to come to court, that they could continue to maintain contact and that he could continue to count on her. Claudia does not know if Ivet clarified in her complaint that she filed on March 18 that Diego had promised to kill her if she left with another of hers and that she had put a knife to her neck. But the reality is that Ivet did not have any protection.
