The Prosecutor’s Office had already achieved the conviction of Yibran Arnovis Imbachi Jiménez, who was arrested when he tried to sell the victim’s car.

At the request of the Prosecutor’s Office, a judge sentenced Jhon Jairo Osorio Pérez and Carlos Andrés Castro Vargas to 19 years in prison, for their participation in the murder of a university professor in Florencia (Caquetá) on October 5, 2023. They stole his vehicle.

Both accepted their responsibility in the crimes of aggravated homicide, aggravated robbery and concealment, alteration or destruction of material evidence.

This preliminary agreement allowed them to go from perpetrators to accomplices of the crime.

In addition to this sentence, is that of Yibran Arnovis Imbachi Jiménez who was sentenced to 22 years in El Cunduy Prison in Caquetá, where Osorio Pérez and Castro Vargas are also held.

The evidence was enough to prove their guilt in these facts that took place in a home located in Los Transportadores neighborhood, where the professor from a renowned university in Florence was going to close his truck´s vehicle. There he was stabbed in the neck and chest, causing his immediate death.

It was proven that the attackers washed the house where the victim was murdered with industrial vinegar, chlorine and nitric acid in order to erase any evidence.

They took the corpse to the municipality of Morelia in their own vehicle and threw it into  Pescado River, then they traveled to Valledupar (Cesar) to sell the vehicle, an action that was frustrated by the authorities.

The professor´s cell phone, chain, gold ring, cash and laptop, valued at around 90 million COP were stolen.
