(CNN Spanish) — The Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City reported this Monday that it obtained a 70-year prison sentence against Erick Francisco “N”, after being found guilty of the crime of the femicide of Ingrid Escamilla, whose case sparked a wave of protests throughout the country demanding justice and preventive actions to avoid this type of murder.
According to a statement from the Prosecutor’s Office, a trial court issued the sentence, which includes “payment for compensation for death and funeral expenses, as well as compensation for non-pecuniary damage.”
The Prosecutor’s Office added that his political rights were suspended and he was denied benefits and alternatives to the sentence.
CNN is trying to find out the position of the person involved during the trial and his reaction to the conviction, as well as that of his legal representation.
Ingrid Escamilla, 25, was found dead on February 9, 2020 in the Gustavo A. Madero mayor’s office, in the north of the Mexican capital. Days later, an arrest was announced around her death.
