Motril Murder Sentence

The murder took place on the 12th of April, 2021, in a cortijo on the Camino de Pataura in Motril where they lived. Jasmina, who was 34 at the time, stabbed the younger women 13 times and then hid the body.

The provincial court took into consideration her confession as an attenuating circumstance, but the viciousness of the assault as a factor against her when summing up the prison sentence.

She also has to keep well away from the victim’s mother and sisters for the next 22 years as well as serve another five years on parol once released from prison. There is also the compensation that she will have to pay, totalling 75,000 euros, as well as 22,000 to each one of the four sisters.

The sentence read, “the intention of Yasmina, through the repeated stabbing, was not only to end her life but also to cruelly make her suffer.” Although the sentence only speaks of 13 stab wounds, the autopsy report speaks of many more injuries from the blows received as well as cuts produced by the knife.

The jury also considered it proven that Yasmina had taken cocaine before stabbing the victim and was under its effects, but the judge did not apply  drug-addiction as an attentuating circumstance, as she was not that affected by the drug not to know what she was doing. The judge did take into consideration her confession, which she made the following day, after trying to find somewhere to hide the body without success.

Finally, Yasmina can appeal before the Regional High Court, (TSJA) and the accusation levied against Antonio Manuel L. C., as an accessory after the fact was dropped; he is a personal friend of Yasimna who has a mental retardation.
