Rosario and Alfonso were taken to prison accused of their daughter’s murder. The guilt of them was decided in court, which took place in Santiago de Compostela, two years after. There were many problems to gather a citizen’s jury. Many candidates declined to participate declaring that they felt influenced by the mass media about the case.
