A 21-year-old girl was stabbed to death inside the house where she lived with her boyfriend on Wednesday morning (31), in the city of Ferros.
According to the PM, Bruno Magalhães Venceslau, 22, boyfriend of Maria Clara Oliveira Soares, is the main suspect in the crime. The couple has been together for approximately three years.
Bruno was arrested at his parents’ house shortly after the murder.
He told the military that while Maria was sleeping, he read messages on her cell phone that would prove a betrayal.
The suspect said that he tried to kill himself with a knife when he saw the messages, but was stopped by the young woman who woke up to the noise and denied the betrayal.
During an argument, he hit the victim with five knife blows. Maria could not resist the injuries and died in the bedroom of the house.
Also according to the PM, after the crime Bruno tried to kill himself again, but he couldn’t.
The young man went to his parents’ house where he confessed that he would have killed his girlfriend and was arrested at the scene.
At the couple’s residence, the expertise found that Maria Clara was hit by two stab wounds in the neck and three in the body.
