A 63-year-old man was shot dead during a robbery in the rural area of Engenheiro Caldas, in Vale do Rio Doce, in September this year. Civil Police investigations revealed the involvement of the victim’s wife in the crime.
According to the police report, the victim and his wife were driving along a road when they were surprised by two men. The woman told police that the criminals ordered them to get out of the vehicle and her husband started running. At this moment, the men fired several shots and Geraldo was hit.
The woman was not injured and the men fled with two cell phones and a gold chain. Geraldo was rescued and taken to Governador Valadares Municipal Hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries and died.
Two suspects, aged 37 and 43, were arrested during a blockade carried out by the Military Police. They were in a car, were chased and abandoned the vehicle.
The Civil Police represented the arrest of the victim’s wife, aged 52, who is on the run.
According to the police, investigations showed that the woman was involved in the crime. She would have planned the robbery with the two men arrested and would have been responsible for providing cover for the criminals.
The police investigation is being concluded and will be forwarded to the judiciary.
