Man sentenced to 18 years in prison for killing aunt and nephew

A man was sentenced, this Wednesday (31/8), to 18 years and 8 months of imprisonment, in an initially closed regime, for shooting a woman and her nephew, at the door of their house, in Goiânia. The Sentencing Council acquitted two other accused of the crime, committed in 2018, in Conjunto Vera Cruz II, southwest region of the capital.

According to the decision, Ygor Murilo dos Reis was sentenced for the death of Débora Veríssimo dos Passos, 49, and Rodrigo Cintra dos Passos, 26. Darci Gama dos Reis Neto and Gabriel Batista Rodrigues were acquitted. O metropolises did not find contact from the victim’s relatives and the defendants’ defense to manifest themselves.

The crime was committed on October 2, 2018. According to the Public Ministry of the State of Goiás (MP-GO), Rodrigo was at the door of his house washing his car, a Hyundai HB20, when men arrived and shot him. Then his aunt appeared at the gate and was also shot. The two died on the spot.

At the time of the crime, according to the investigation, family friends reported that the two must have been killed by mistake and that the real target would be Rodrigo’s brother, who was persecuted in the neighborhood.

According to the complaint, Gabriel and Ygor went to the crime scene with a teenager, following Darci’s orders. According to MP-GO, they were all part of a gang, which Rodrigo’s brother was also part of.

The target of the shots, according to the lawsuit, would be Rodrigo’s brother. However, upon arriving at the scene, the suspects saw Rodrigo inside a car and thought he was their target. So, at that moment, two of them got out of the vehicle and shot at the young man.

Immediately after hearing the shots, the boy’s aunt came out the door of the house and, too, was shot. According to the complaint, they shot at her with the aim of preventing her from telling who was responsible for the murder. She also died on the spot.

Judge Lourival Machado da Costa presided over the popular jury. In the sentence, the magistrate sentenced Ygor, who would have appointed the victim. According to the MPGO, he was also responsible for driving the car that took the executioners to the victim’s house.
