    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A Costa Rican court sentenced Mena Montoya with 20 years in prison for trying to kill his wife by putting poison in her coffee.

    Judge Ana Leonor Villalobos, of the Criminal Court of Cartago (center), read the sentence that said Montoya is guilty of the crime of femicide (murder of a female gender) against his wife Mary Cecilia Víquez.

    “I want to send a positive message to women that are attacked,” said the judge.

    According to the prosecution, the incident occurred on February 14, 2011, just days after the couple decided to separate after 25 years of marriage.

    However, the couple continued to live together, and according to the wife, on February 14, 2011 he prepared a coffee for her to take to work on a strawberry farm in the town of Canyon, Cartago.

    After drinking the coffee the woman lost consciousness and was taken to a hospital where they saved her life.

    The toxin report from the hospital revealed residues of a highly toxic pesticide in the woman’s system. (ACAN-EFE)
