Adopted Chinese Girl Murdered by Her European Parents

Prosecution lawyers alleged that the couple – who had split at the time of the murder – had planned to kill Asunta in cold blood, although it was stated that Porto actually carried-out the crime. The child was drugged with a sedative called Orfidal administered over a period of around three months before her death – when it is thought Porta strangled Asunta to death. The couple then dumped Asunta’s body in the woods near to the city of Santiago de Compostela, where it was later discovered on the 22nd of September, 2013.
