Antonio “Neguinho” stabbed Cleo to death in 2019 for trivial reasons.

Antônio Lucas, 43, known as “Neguinho”, was sentenced to life imprisonment in the United States last Thursday (11). The trial was due to the murder of his ex-partner. Clucilene Alves da Silva, 41, “‘Clio'”, was killed in Worcester, Massachusetts at the end of May 2019, as already reported by Diario do Aso. Facts in time.

Both the victim and the perpetrator are from Azucena, a municipality in the Colar Metropolitano do Vale do Aço. Neguinho was found guilty of first-degree murder by a jury at a Worcester Superior Court trial, according to A Notícia USA newspaper, a news site aimed at Brazilians living in the United States.

According to information on the website, a conviction for first-degree murder carries a sentence of life in prison without parole. Antonio Lucas, who “self-represented” himself at trial, will be sentenced at a hearing scheduled for September 7.

Cleuculene and former partner Antônio Lucas, although separated, lived in the same house they bought together during their relationship. The two planned to sell the property to split the money.

After living in America for over ten years, Cleo was seen by her friends as a charming and adorable woman. On the other hand, according to the local press, Antonio was considered violent and the reason for their separation was due to quarrels and confusion.

A mundane motive would have led to Cleo’s murder
The fight that led to the murder began when Cleo let a gay couple sleep over at the house, according to local press reports. Neguinho did not agree and the disagreement ended with the Brazilian’s murder.

Immediately after committing the crime, Antonio Lucas was arrested by the police and immediately held without bail. At the court hearing, the man said he killed Cluculin because he was “angry”.
