21-year-old Folk singer Yrma Lydya was tragically murdered while eating at a Japanese restaurant in Mexico in front of other patrons.
To add to that, she was shot by her 79-year-old husband Jesus Hernandez Alcocer as reported by VladTV.
The two reportedly got into a heated argument while at dinner over Hernandez’s domestic violence and Lydya wanting to divorce him. He then shot her 3 times and try to flee with his security guard before they were captured.
A singer was allegedly shot dead by her elderly husband in a restaurant after trying to divorce him for months.
Yrma Lydya, 21, was gunned down by Jesus Hernandez, 79, inside a private room at a Japanese restaurant in Mexico City, cops say.
Folk artist Lydya was eating at the venue in the Benito Juarez neighborhood when she was killed last Thursday.
The couple became embroiled in a row in the private room and Hernandez shot his young wife three times in the chest, it’s alleged.
It’s also claimed he and his bodyguard, Benjamin Hernandez, then attempted to flee in a luxury car before being snared by cops.
Hernandez tried to bribe officers into letting him go, reports claim.
The horrific killing came after Lydya contacted a law firm in April about starting divorce proceedings.
She showed pictures of her bruised face from a number of domestic violence incidents as evidence, reports Mexican newspaper Excelsior.
Lydya had also filed a police report in December claiming her husband had beaten her and threatened her with a gun on another occasion.
A police officer who was at the restaurant rushed to the private room and restrained Hernandez, a witness told news program Primer Impacto.
Harfuch confirmed that the singer died after sustaining three shots to her chest during the row.
Hernandez and his bodyguard appeared in court Sunday and are being held in pretrial detention at a Mexico City prison as cops continue to investigate.
The lawyer pleaded not guilty and insisted he did not kill Lydya, who was due to perform at a concert in California on Saturday.
Hernandez did try to bribe police but it didn’t work and he’s currently sitting in a Mexican jail.
