Although “woman marries twin sister’s killer” may have made strange news headlines this week, ABC News reported this Saturday, Feb. 16, that the family and neighbors of Edith Casas, the new bride, are against the Valentine’s Day wedding.
An Argentine woman married a man who was convicted in a court of law for killing her twin sister, and though neighbors and family were against it — a mob even gathered outside the office of the wedding this Valentine’s Day — throwing eggs and stones at the windows.
Edith Casas, 23, became the bride of Victor Cingolani, but asserts that he is innocent of killing her twin sister Johana over two years ago, though he was convicted and given a prison sentence of no less than 13 years. The new groom also says he is innocent.
The mother, who thinks her daughter is “crazy” to marry Cingolani or be known as the “woman marries twin sister’s killer” in the news — Edith Casas’ mother even tried to block the wedding — but a judge said the daughter legally as the right to marry him.
