They demand justice for Carolina, a young Juchiteca who died as a result of the beatings of her partner.
Family and friends of Carolina, a young Juchiteca who died as a result of the beatings of her partner, launched a campaign on social networks to demand justice.
Rogelia González Luis, founder of the March 8 Women’s Group, indicated that there are sufficient elements for the crime to be reclassified from attempted femicide to femicide and thus the aggressor has a penalty of up to 50 years in prison.

“Carolina did not die, she was murdered. The legal issue was classified as an attempted femicide, however, with the autopsy, there are enough elements to reclassify it and it may remain as femicide, this implies that it will have a greater sentence to purge in prison, ”said the activist who followed up on the case.
For 12 days, Carolina LL agonized in the “Macedonio Benítez Fuentes” hospital where she was admitted on February 5 after being beaten by her partner, Antonio CL, who is currently in custody.
The case stirred public outrage, who in messages posted on Facebook asked that it not remain in impunity.

Antonio’s abuses frightened her because she was constantly attacked with a machete.
