The judge orders the entry into prison of the accused of killing a 14-year-old girl in Oviedo

The judge has ordered the entry into prison of the man accused of killing a 14-year-old girl in Oviedo, who was found dead last Tuesday with stab wounds inside the building where her family lived.

The magistrate of the investigating court number 2 of the Asturian capital has decided to issue the order of provisional detention, communicated and without bail after the request of the Prosecutor’s Office. As reported by the Superior Court of Justice of Asturias, he is accused of crimes of murder and attempted sexual assault, although it can be modified throughout the investigation.

One of the young Erika’s brothers found a trace of blood from the lifeless body shortly before 4:00 p.m. inside the building located at number 69 Vázquez de Mella street, in the Vallobín neighborhood of Oviedo.

The agents of the National Police who moved to the place alerted by the neighbors found, together with the minor, the man of about 30 years -resident of the same building- who was also bleeding and had stab wounds, inflicted by himself.

The defendant was transferred to the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA) as a detainee, to where the magistrate traveled, despite the fact that he refused to testify before her. Once he is discharged for his injuries, he will go to prison. In addition, he does not have a criminal record but he does have a police record for harassing several women.

The man was acquitted on February 7, 2020 of a minor crime of threats and sentenced to a fine of 8 euros a day for 2 months for a minor crime of coercion, a sentence issued on January 30 of that year that was appealed.

The appeal sentence to said ruling, issued by the Third Section of the Provincial Court of Oviedo, lowered the fine from 8 euros per day for 2 months to 1 month.

The 31-year-old detainee, who has a history of harassing several women, some of them minors, had been living for just three weeks in an apartment on the first floor of number 69 Vázquez de Mella street, in the Oviedo neighborhood of Vallobín, where Erika lived with her family-
