Preliminary hearing against the defendant accused of running over two riders in Loiza is postponed due to impasse between the defense and the prosecution

The preliminary hearing against Ruthy Trenche Chavezaccused of running over and killing two riders and their horses in Loiza on March 25, was postponed after the accused’s legal representation demanded that some 190 photos collected by the Police at the scene be handed over to him and the Public Prosecutor’s Office refused to provide them.

Graduate Edwin Castro FontanezTrenche Chavez’s lawyer, through a written motion, requested access from the Public Prosecutor’s Office to both a sworn statement issued by a Loiza Municipal Police officer who interviewed his client and to the images.

However, according to the prosecutor Gilberto Gierbolinithis preliminary stage of judicial proceedings does not oblige the Public Prosecutor’s Office to deliver images of the scenealthough he promised that he would send the Defense a copy of the sworn statement.

For these purposes, Castro Fontanez requested the judge of the Court of Carolina, Arlene de la Matta Melendezwhich issued a court order to grant him access to the photos, arguing that they are important in his preparation process to elucidate the case and that it is also Trenche Chavez’s right to be able to verify the evidence.
