A 24-year-old young man died after a long agony, as a result of infections made by burns that his girlfriend caused him, throwing boiling water during an argument.
The victim was identified as Matias Cuello, who was burned by her partner on April 15, when she threw boiling water during an argument at the home they shared in Pilar town.
The boy was hospitalized in La Clinica Modelo of Vicente Lopez, with 50% of his body burned and after 22 days of a painful agony he died of infections that doctors could not prevent.
After the autopsy, it was found that the boy was burned on purpose, discarding the accident and therefore the Guarantee Judge Nicholas Ceballos ordered the arrest of the suspect, who remained a fugitive until today.
The victim’s family said the couple had a relationship of conflict and she beat even the young man, as he would work with marks on his body he could not explain.
Both had a baby six months, and now Cuello family claims her tenure.
