The body of the doctor, Erick Alves Pinto, aged 37, stabbed to death by his ex’s current partner, was buried this Thursday morning (1st) in Volta Redonda (RJ). The burial took place at the Portal da Saudade Cemetery.
According to the Civil Police, the attacker attended the police station and pretended to be the victim of an attempted attack. In his statement, he said that the fight was motivated by a situation involving his stepson — the victim’s son and the attacker’s partner.
His testimony, from the police’s point of view, presented contradictions. Then, the agents located the doctor’s wife, who gave another version of what happened. She said that her husband was in the car when the attacker approached the vehicle and insistently tried to hit him, sticking the knife in his chest.
The attacker was arrested red-handed and transferred to the prison system. He will be charged with murder.
