A man from Rosario, Santa Fe, was sentenced to 13 years in prison as a participant in a homicide for having lent his sister's motorcycle to two people who used it for a murder.
He is Alcides Jonatan Silva, who will serve a sentence of 13 years in prison for the crime of homicide as a participant.
The sentence was signed by judges Gonzalo Fernández Bussy, Gonzalo López Quintana and Luz Álvarez after an abbreviated trial agreed between the prosecutor in the case, Adrián Spelta, and the defendant's defense.
The incident in question occurred around 18 p.m. on June 19, 2021, when he handed a motorcycle to two people to leave the premises of the 2 de Junio Social and Sports Club, located in the southern area of Rosario, and chase a Chevrolet Corsa, which they caught about 100 meters ahead.
According to the investigation, the vehicle was driven by a man who was accompanied by the fatal victim, identified as Misael Faure. Both had retired seconds before the club.
The perpetrators of the homicide, who have not yet been identified by the courts, got next to the car and shot its occupants several times.
Faure was shot in the head, while the assailants fled the scene of the crime and then returned Silva's motorcycle.
The victim was rushed to the local Emergency Hospital, where he was admitted due to the severity of his injuries, which caused him to lose his vision and become paraplegia.
Finally, Faure died on September 9, 2021, almost 3 months after the shooting, from a cardiac arrhythmia, as a result of an infected sacral eschar, the MPA said.
According to prosecutor Spelta, it was proven that the Honda XR250 motorcycle used in the murder was owned by Silva's sister, although he was authorized to drive it.
The prosecutor understood, and the judges validated it, that thanks to "the essential contribution" of Silva, who "provided the necessary means to achieve the proposed objective," the two people had at their disposal the motorcycle that was indispensable to commit the crime.
