A woman in Argentina wants to marry the man who was convicted of murdering her twin sister.
Edith Casas, 22, believes that her fiance, Victor Cingolani, "would not hurt a fly" and is innocent in her sister's death, the BBC reported.
Cingolani is currently serving a 13-year sentence for the murder of Johana Casas, a model whose body was found in a field with two bullet wounds in 2010. Cingolani had dated Johana, but the two were not in a relationship when she was killed.
"[Edith Casas] isn't jealous," Cingolani told Argentine newspaper Clarin, according to the BBC. "We always talk about Johana, about how she was."
The convict also noted that while his relationship with Johana Casas was "casual," he is "in love" with Edith.
The wedding was supposed to take place Saturday, El Patagonico reported. However, a civil judge has postponed the event after Casas' mother, Marcelina del Carmen Orellana, submitted a request for a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation of her daughter.
Orellana, believes the would-be bride is clearly "psychologically ill." Casas' family has stated they feel she is guilty of "a terrible betrayal."
Cingolani's attorney, Lucas Chacon says that while he can sympathize with the family's concerns, "Edith is not marrying a killer."
Chacon insists that Marcos Diaz, who was dating Johana Casas when she was killed, is the real murderer, the Mail reported. Diaz is scheduled to go on trial next year.
