The death of a 14-year-old girl, whose body was found Monday evening in the Seine in Argenteuil, caused a shock wave in France. At a press conference on Wednesday, attorney Eric Corbo announced that the two defendants, a 15-year-old boy and girl, are charged with the murder.
The body of 14-year-old Alisha was seen Monday evening in the Seine River near the municipality of Argenteuil near Paris. A few hours later, two of his colleagues, a 15-year-old boy and a girl, were arrested. According to Corbaux, the boy and the victim had a short-lived love affair. After that, intimate photos of the victim were distributed, after which a quarrel broke out in early March.
According to the attorney, there are text messages there was something to do for the 14-year-old. Later, she was ambushed. The suspect had knocked and kicked her on the ground. Then, with the help of the girl, she was thrown into the water. “She was neither unconscious nor able to move when they decided to throw her into the River Seine,” said Corbo. Maybe the girl drowned after that. Her body suffered many bruises.
The victim’s family called for Alisha’s memorial march this weekend. Her mother called for justice in the French media.
The boy and the girl face a twenty-year prison sentence.
