A trial court in San Miguelito found attorney Zoraida Saucedo guilty of double homicide.

The decision was made known on Wednesday, May 18, at the end of her trial for her alleged link to the murders of Canadian citizen Miomir Kotlica, 62, and the Panamanian Miguel Páez, 27, in San Antonio, San Miguelito, in October 2017.

Saucedo was also found guilty of falsifying documents and public stamps, to the detriment of the two victims.

The Public Ministry has requested a sentence of 48 years in prison.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 15, at 3:00 p.m.

Saucedo is also linked to the deaths of Marianela Vallarino, 46, and Italian Furio Ferrari, 70, whose bodies were found in Las Cumbres, also in 2017
