Two men aged 18 and 20 were indicted for the rape, aggravated by acts of torture or barbarism, of a woman burned at 30%, according to the Dauphiné released in Voiron (Isère).
The 43-year-old victim, hospitalized in Lyon, "will have to benefit from care over a very long period", added the deputy prosecutor of Grenoble Boris Duffau, specifying that "his initial ITT will certainly have to be reassessed upwards".
The facts took place during the night from Tuesday to Wednesday at the home of this woman, who herself had warned the police and the emergency services.
