An 18 year-old Argentine girl was stabbed to death in front of her child by the man who had raped her, and had forgiven him enough to accept him as her husband.

Last April, Carla Figueroa told police that while holding a knife to her abdomen, Marcelo Tomaselli had sexually abused her; Tomaselli was arrested and spent 8 months in prison, until Figueroa forgave him and got the charges dropped.

The pair married this past October 28th, while he was still in prison.

Last Saturday, Tomaselli stabbed his wife to death, in front of their three year-old, as well as his own mother.

Tomaselli was found by police in the kitchen of his own home, holding the three year-old with bloody hands.

He was arrested and refused to say anything to investigators. Later he tried to hang himself in his cell using his own pants.
