COUNCIL CHRONICLE – Brenda Barattini, a 26-year-old aspiring architect, will stand trial for the alleged mutilation of her 40-year-old rock star boyfriend. The victim had 90 percent of his genitals damaged during the November 2017 attack. A defense attorney speaking on behalf of the Argentinian architect claims that the genital mutilation might have the unfortunate result of a sex game gone wrong.
Argentinian Architect Says She Assaulted Boyfriend after Leaked Sex Tape
In November 2017, the Cordoba law enforcement officials arrested 26-year-old Brenda Barattini, an architect, after the woman attacked 40-year-old Sergio Fernandez with a pair of gardening shears, slitting his genitals.
Based on the woman’s testimony, the investigators determined that this might either be the result of a sexual game gone wrong or the architect trying to defend herself from the victim.
From what we learned so far, there two viable leads. According to Barattini’s lawyer and what the woman confessed to her cellmates after being incarcerated, Sergio Fernandez, the woman’s boyfriend, and a rock musician came to the woman’s apartment to allegedly pick up a musical instrument he left behind.
Barattini claims that Fernandez assaulted her and that she used the garden shears in self-defense. More than that, the woman declared that it wasn’t her intention to kill the ‘aggressor,’ just to scare him off.
However, Fernandez’s lawyer paints an entirely different picture. According to the prosecution, Fernandez came to Barattini’s home to have consensual sex. While in the woman’s bedroom, Fernandez agreed to be tied and blindfolded.
Evidence found at the crime scene points towards Barattini waiting for the right moment to slash Fernandez’s genitals. Furthermore, the Argentinian architect confessed to holding a grudge against Fernandez, after her former boyfriend shared a sex tape with his close friends.
At the moment, Fernandez is in stable condition following his surgery. The doctors programmed a second surgery later this year in an attempt to reconstruct Fernandez’ severed genitalia.
If the Argentinian architect is found guilty, she could spend the next 15 years behind bars.
