An evangelical pastor and four of his congregants have been found guilty in the death of a 25-year-old woman who was thrown into a fire to drive “demons” from her body.
In a decision handed down late Tuesday, a five-member jury found pastor Juan Gregorio Rocha Romero and the other four guilty of homicide in the death of Vilma Trujillo Garcia. She suffered burns over 80 percent of her body before dying in February.
Judge Alfredo Silva Chamorro noted there were aggravating circumstances, because the woman was tied to a tree trunk and left in the fire for five hours.
Sentencing has been set for May 9. Prosecutors are seeking sentences of up to 36 years in prison, although Nicaragua’s maximum sentence is 30 years.
Rocha Romero had denied wrongdoing, telling the newspaper La Prensa that the woman fell into the fire without anyone pushing her and a demon exited her body
The facility also houses priests who have been accused of sexual abuse

Yesterday, Msgr. William Dombrow, rector of Villa St. Joseph, Darby, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to four counts of wire fraud. Dombrow embezzled more that $500,000 over a nine year period.
The rector of a Delaware County retirement home for Philadelphia Archdiocese priests admitted in federal court Thursday that he embezzled more than a half-million dollars from the residence over nearly nine years.
Msgr. William A. Dombrow told U.S. District Judge Gerald J. Pappert that he https://riotfest.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/i-dont-like-mondays-698×392.jpg” alt=”best casual hookup apps”> siphoned funds from a private account set up to support Villa St. Joseph in Darby Borough. He pleaded guilty to four counts of wire fraud.
Much of the money that flowed into that account came from life insurance payouts of priests who had died while residing there or bequests from the estates of parishioners.
