In a similar case last month, Jesica Osores of the neighboring Argentine city of Tucuman was acquitted. She was charged with homicide as she killed her partner, in defense. She killed her husband with the same knife that he had threatened her with a couple of moments earlier.

Osores was cleared of all charges as the jury decided that she acted in that way in order to defend herself after being subjected to domestic abuse by her husband, Javier Hernan Gomez, of nine years. Jesica claimed in front of the jury that it was either her life or her husband’s.

It is speculated that in Lopez’s case, a similar verdict would come out as the news of domestic abuse is out in the open.
