(ANSA) – CAGLIARI, SEPTEMBER 15 – The trial with an abbreviated rite of the two thirty-year-old spouses, Dragana Ahmetovic and Slavko Seferovic, accused of the voluntary murder of their 20-month-old daughter Esperanza, which vanished into thin air, ended with a 20-year sentence in December 2017 from the parents’ caravan, found on the outskirts of Cagliari. Defended by the lawyers Federico Delitala and Michele Satta, the two young nomads obtained from the Gup of the Court of Cagliari, Giampaolo Casula, the generic extenuating circumstances that reduced the sentence compared to the 30 years requested by the prosecutor Guido Pani.
The little girl had disappeared close to Christmas 2017, when the van where the family lived was set on fire. The prosecutor, after many conflicting versions and retractions provided by the couple, was convinced that the child had been killed around 5 December, suffocated or hanged. The body was never found: the parents were thus also charged with the concealment of the body, the simulation of a crime and the willful burning of the vehicle. Both during the preliminary investigation into the disappearance and later from prison, the couple – who changed several lawyers – gave different versions. (HANDLE).
