Femic José Arce (68), sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his wife, Rosana Galliano (29), died this Saturday at the hospital where he was hospitalized because of pressure problems.
To send him to kill Galliano, who was at that time mother of two children aged 2 and 4, Arce and her mother, Elsa Aguilar, were sentenced to the maximum sentence, but they had home arrest. The most controversial cause is that of justice granted custody of the two children Arce and Galliano maintained.
The news of Arce's death was announced on Saturday by Oscar Galliano, the assassin's brother. The killer was hospitalized in the Sanguinetti de Pilar hospital after he suffered a pressure peak.
Victim. Rosana Galliano (29).
Arce has already had previous health problems, so he asked for the electronic anklet.
Rosana Galliano was killed on January 16, 2008, around 22 in a villa in the El Remanso neighborhood, in the Exalting Cruz. The young woman was there with one of her sisters. They agreed to meet Arce, so the man could take his children out.
The women were about to eat when the phone rang and, as Rosana had a bad signal on her cell phone, she had to go to the park to talk. While she was talking, someone shot her and killed her.
In 2013, Arce and her mother had been condemned to life as being responsible for "the triple killing of the bondage, betrayal and the fact that it was committed intentionally by two or more persons." It was not possible to determine who finished the murder, because the Leguizamon brothers – who came to trial accused of committing homicide – were acquitted.
But his femicide and mother were recently arrested in July 2014, when the Court of Appeal upheld the lower court's ruling. Also a few months later, in February 2015, they were granted a home arrest advantage.

Despite the conviction they have received, Justice has not removed the mandate of the two boys, who probably lived for ten years with their mother's murderer. In addition, Arce was the one who set the conditions: the children would see their grandparents every 15 days, but not their uncles or cousins. But, according to the family, he did not even respect the visits every two weeks.
"It's incredible that with the conviction she's got, she's very hot at home, living with her kids and not letting us see." Why does she have so many privileges? If he and his mother are two psychopaths, I'm sinister. Justice does not see that children are in danger, they have already killed my daughter, I can kill them … ", said the parents of Graciela and Reinaldo, Rosana's parents, in a note to Clarín in 2015.
At the end of 2016, Judge Carlos Ruiz, in charge of the Family Court no. 5 of San Isidro, ordered the two children to reassure their grandparents.
