Aquino, 64, was arrested at the request of prosecutors Martin Gomez and Alejandro Musso, who considered inconsistent and contradictory the explanations given by the woman for her movements since she arrived at the house at 6.40 a.m. on August 24 and at 9 a.m. when she found the bodies of the husbands – for whom she had been working for a long time. 12 years – in his Mercedes Benz E350, in the garage of his house located on Melo y Gaspar Campos.
