In a new hearing of the trial for the femicide of Nora Dalmasso, which takes place in the courts of Río Cuarto, this Thursday Cecilia Balbo, a teenage friend of the victim, testifies as a witness.
The woman was summoned to provide information about what she knew about her friend’s married life and some of the aspects of Nora’s personality, given that Balbo maintained a 35-year friendship with the victim; according to the Télam Agency.
Since the trial began, on March 14, 56 witnesses of the almost 300 summoned for the debate have declared that the only defendant is the widower of Nora Dalmasso, Marcelo Macarrón, for the crime of “homicide qualified by the link, by treachery and by price or remuneration promise in an ideal competition”.
Prosecutor Luis Pizarro, the last one to investigate and bring the case to trial, considered that the crime that occurred on the morning of November 25, 2006 in a house in the Villa Golf neighborhood of Río Cuarto, could have been motivated by “marital disagreements and economic”.
In this regard, the prosecutor considered that Macarrón “planned to kill his wife, Nora Dalmasso, with persons not yet identified,” for which he provided “the murderer with the keys or the intelligence to enter the house without forcing the lock, information and movements, and ensuring a space of time in which she was alone, without any other member of the family”.
