María del Carmen Hilares Martínez received more than 60 stab wounds from her daughter, an 18-year-old law student. He had wanted to poison her, but in the end he decided to kill her with a knife. Her name would be covered in the following days in different newspapers and newscasts: Giuliana Llamoja, the matricide who had committed the crime with cruelty and hatred against her mother in the house on Las Magnolias street in the district of San Juan de Miraflores. The rebellious girl, whom many friends and relatives said had to be patient, had brought to death the woman who gave her life.
“I killed her! I killed her!” he yelled at his brother Luis with the blood on his hands. His mother lay on the floor without moving. While her father, Judge Luis LLamoja, received the news in a bed in a hotel in Buenos Aires where he was following a refresher course.
The relationship between Giuliana and María del Carmen was bad, tense, they never got along, some close family acquaintances recalled that they had regretted not doing anything before, perhaps taking her to a psychologist or a psychiatrist, but the homicide was already accomplished.
On a day in March 2005, the young woman had been trying on a new dress in front of the mirror around 9:00 pm Her mother appeared to reprimand her. And then shouts began to be thrown into the air, an argument that had no end.
Giuliana confessed to the police that the victim, who worked as a secretary in a military unit, had found an envelope of rat poison and thought that her daughter had tried to poison her. She was not wrong. The law student had been planning this murder, but she regretted it.
From here everything is confusing. At the police demonstration, the young woman said that María del Carmen was the first to attack her with a kitchen knife. Giuliana had minor cuts and lacerations on her arms. But, according to her, she was able to snatch this sharp object from him and attacked him back: more than 60 stab wounds throughout her body.
Seeing his mother dead, he dragged the corpse into a bathroom and returned to the living room. Two hours passed. He had not called anyone or asked for help to help the woman. Any. He just waited for his brother Luis to arrive to tell him, between tears and tears, what had happened. He was shocked. María del Carmen’s body was bathed in blood.
But there is also another version: a leak pointed out that Giuliana had insulted her mother by yelling at her ignorantly and took it out on her face that she did not have a university education like her or her father and that would have started it all. The only truth only she knows.

With the criminal courtroom full of photographers, journalists and Giuliana Llamoja’s family, the trial began against this young woman who had once won a dance contest on television and who was now facing a judge to determine her sentence for murdering his mother.
The matricide defended herself by indicating that she considered her mother “good”, but usually when she was angry and angry, she went against her. “She called me a prostitute, you don’t have a boyfriend, I have your father,” she said.
Giuliana did not stop crying during the trial. She said that her mother wanted to attack her first, that she had turned off the light when she had tried to disarm her and that she had responded to her supposed attack.
“I am not a monster. I don’t have a sinister mind. At that time I didn’t feel like it was my mother, it was just a black spot that pounced on me and I wanted to prevent it from hurting me, ”she said.
Turning on the light, he found the body of his mother. She didn’t move; he had killed her. She took a bath because she felt gross, but she never asked anyone for help.
He contradicted himself in some versions: he stated that he had not tried to kill his mother with the rodenticide, he had only bought it out of curiosity: he wanted to see what color this poison would take with a soda once diluted or when faced with difficult questions about the crime he only answered that everything had clouded over; he answered the same thing when asked to explain why he put all the knives in the house in a bag and threw them in the garden.
Giuliana also accused her aunt Carmen Rosa of being a bad influence on the victim. The defense of the murderer asked the Prosecutor’s Office to prosecute María del Carmn’s sister for instigating the crime of injuries because she, allegedly, had incited mother and daughter to be in constant fights, although this request did not prosper.
The psychiatric reports clarified the personality of the murderer: she suffers from the Electra complex (affective attachment to the father) and shows a histrionic personality.
At the time of the reading of the sentence, Giuliana was crying: 20 years in prison. She also had to pay a civil compensation of 30 thousand nuevos soles in favor of her mother’s relatives. Before leaving the room, she said goodbye to her brother Luis de Ella, 12 years old, that close relative that she would never speak to again in her life.

FUFUGE FROM JUSTICE
Giuliana Lmoja’s sentence had been reduced from 20 to 12 years, which had initially been imposed by the Court of Lima. The members had considered that the repentance of the young woman had been sincere as a mitigating factor to reduce the sentence. They took into account that at the time of the murder she was 18 years old, so the law somewhat minimized her crimes. The murderer was being held in the Women’s prison in Chorrillos.
In 2009, after serving four years in prison, a third of her 12-year sentence, the woman was released on semi-liberty. No one came to pick her up and the release procedures were carried out by the director of the prison. This was restricted to some established rules of conduct such as that he could not change his address without prior notice from the court, he had to continue with his psychological therapy, prove his employment every three months, appear in court every 30 days in order to justify his activities. work and education, and was prevented from leaving the country.
However, in 2012, she did not comply with some of the aforementioned restrictions and became a fugitive from justice. There was this rumor that she had run away to Ecuador. Her father, like her from the first moment, continued to support her, but her brother Luis de Ella hoped that she would remain in prison until her last days and regretted that she had not taken advantage of the benefit of her freedom.
The young woman had disappeared and her brother blamed her father, who supposedly had interference with her. That same year, the Superior Court of Justice of Lima ordered the arrest warrant against Giuliana to be revoked as it found no responsibility for the sentenced person having transgressed rules of conduct. The resolution warned that the court in charge of the process did not issue any prior requirement to warn the sentenced person of non-compliance with the rules of conduct that were required of her, which was necessary.
Luis accused his father – who bears the same name – of having influence over the magistrate who made this decision because he was his “close friend”.
