QCOSTARICA – The Criminal Court of Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, sentenced Esteban Rovira Vargas to 35 years in prison for murdering his ex, Maria Fernanda Oviedo.

Happier times

Apparently, he had a restraining order against him due to domestic violence, but he still showed up at her place. When she wouldn’t take him back, he killed her with a knife and ran off with their kids.

Police were able to track him down and arrest him.
