Cancun judge sentences man to two 50-year sentences for murder of two women

Cancun, Q. R. — A man found guilty of murdering two Cancun women has been sentenced to 100 years in prison. On Wednesday, the State Attorney General’s Office reported on the sentencing handed down to Orlando Efrain “N” “for the crime of femicide in tort of two victims with confidential identities.”

Orlando Efrain “N” was given a 50-year sentence for the murder of each woman. According to the FGE, prosecutors argued not only “full responsibility of the sentenced person, but also that his conduct falls within the criminal category of femicide, for which the judge handed down a sentence with the maximum penalty.”

Orlando Efrain “N” was found guilty of two murders that took place on November 29, 2020, when he deprived the two women, who were mother and daughter, of their lives.

According to their investigations, Orlando Efrain “N” was at the victims’ home, located in the irregular Valle Verde neighborhood of Cancun, consuming alcholic beverages when the woman went to the corner of the house. The defendant followed her and they became involved in a discussion.

The woman later walked along a dirt road when Orlando Efrain “N” followed her and hit her with a rock. At that moment, the second victim, her teenager daughter, arrived where she was subdued by the subject causing a wound with a sharp weapon. He then fled. Both women died from their injuries.
