Recent figures of gender-related murders in Spain: worst year since 2008
publication date: 
Apr 5, 2017
source / author: 

Madrid - Hours before Ana Gomez was murdered by her husband, she had been sent home by the local women's shelter in Lugo, Galicia.

She was told by workers there to ask for a divorce, but when she confronted 29-year-old Jose Manual Carballo on February 11, 2016, he refused to let her leave.

He took a shotgun and killed her, later turning himself in to the authorities.

Gomez's two children from a previous relationship, a 16- and 17-year-old, were present at the time of the murder - the youngest was wounded by a bullet that went through Gomez.
