The murder of Alejandra Uc Tun in Maxcanú could become, in compliance with legal protocols, the first femicide of the year in the state of Yucatan.
On Wednesday April 17, José Leonardo Canché Ek, 46, killed his sentimental partner, 42 year-old Alejandra with a fire arm. According to the Ministerial Police, the relatives of the now deceased reported that the couple had been living together for 14 years in Maxcanú.
However, according to family members of the victim, they argued and fought constantly. Last Wednesday April 17th, according to testimonies, Canché Ek arrived at the house around 6 in the afternoon totally intoxicated with alcohol and again began a dispute with Alejandra, which led to a fatal outcome, as José Leonardo shot Alejandra with a shotgun.
Although Alejandra was still alive when she arrived to the local IMSS clinic, she passed away minutes later. Canché Ek was arrested, will be subject to trial, and if found guilty of femicide, he could be sentenced to 50 years in prison.
The first femicide of 2019 occurs 107 days into the year, as in the first three months of this year, the Attorney General’s Office did not register any femicide, only two attempts.
The first occurred on January 20 in Peto where Santos Reinaldo Ek Chi tried to kill his partner Geny Leticia Cruz Montejo with a knife, but the victim survived the attack, and the Ek Chi ended up commiting suicide.
The second case took place in Mérida’s colonia Nueva San José Tecoh III, in the month of February, when Víctor del Carmen Aguilar May stabbed his ex-partner, Daniela Magaña Quiñones, while the woman was walking on the street with a baby in her arms, the victim did not die and the agressor was detained and imprisoned.
