14ymedio, Havana, 18 January 2024 — Talía Labañido Figueredo, 21, is the second woman from Camagüey murdered by her ex-partner so far this year and the fifth in Cuba. Her family reported the femicide to the independent media La Hora de Cuba. It happened this Wednesday in Nuevita, and Yendri Rodríguez, who separated from the victim a month earlier, has been arrested.
Labañido Figueredo was born in Guáimaro, where her alleged murderer, a native of Sibanicú, went to look for her at her grandparents’ house. According to this information, revealed by an anonymous source, not finding her there, he then went to Nuevitas around 7:00 pm, where hours later a friend found her stabbed to death in the house they shared. Despite her youth, Labañido Figueredo was the mother of a little girl.
Although the alleged murderer tried to flee, the police arrested him on the outskirts of the town.
