Valentine's Day is supposed to be about love and hearts and enjoying the company of the one you truly care about, but sometimes it brings about strange stories. Such is the one reported by Fox News on Feb. 14, 2013, of a woman in Argentina that married a man that is convicted of killing her twin sister.
The family and friends of 23-year-old Edith Casas wanted nothing to do with the nuptials as a mob gathered outside the civil registry office on Thursday. That was where the wedding took place as stones and eggs were thrown.
Casas says that Victor Cingolani is innocent of killing her twin sister Johana over two years ago. She doesn't believe it at all even though he was convicted and given a 13-year prison sentence.
The 28-year-old Cingolani says he is innocent and will be absolved of the crimes through appeal.
"I've always said that she is threatened by the Cingolani family; I'm afraid that something might happen to her because he is a killer and a manipulator," she told local media.
The mother of the bride thinks that her daughter is crazy to do what she has done, and even attempted to block the wedding. A judge denied the request saying that Edith Casas was capable of making her own decisions.
Cingolani was taken back to prison in handcuffs immediately following the wedding ceremony. Casas had to wait hours for the crowd to go away before she could leave.
