Alexandra's body was found, wrapped in a sheet and with her hands tied, in her bathroom by her own mother. Her ex-partner was convicted of her murder.

A 30-year-old [trans woman] identified as Alexandra was found dead on Sunday (07) by her own mother, in the residence where she lived in the Altos do Cuiabá neighborhood, in the capital.

According to the information, the victim's mother said she spoke to her daughter last Friday (05), however, after that her daughter did not answer her and was missing all Saturday (06).

Alexandra's mother went to the property after her daughter and found the [trans woman] dead in a state of decay. The body was wrapped in a sheet, with hands tied by rope. Family members reported that Alexandra had been in a troubled relationship with a man who has already been identified by the police.

They also said that he had been threatening her with death. Relatives noticed that some home appliances and the victim's cell phone were missing.

On 31st March Marcelo de Almeida Moura was arrested in connection with her murder.

The Civil Police last Wednesday (31) carried out an arrest warrant against Marcelo de Almeida Moura, suspected of murdering [trans woman] Alexandra Monteiro on March 7. The suspect was already detained in the Public Prison of Várzea Grande (Capão Grande). Marcelo already has convictions for attempted murder and for a rape committed against his own sister.

Alexandra and Marcelo had been in a troubled relationship. Days before committing the murder, Marcelo, who was wearing an ankle tag by court order, broke the equipment - an action which caused a report to the police - claiming that he was forced to dispose of the device as a result of threats from five men.

After killing Alexandra, the suspect took her cell phone and posted on the victim's social networks, saying "#partiuRondonopolis", implying that the victim had travelled elsewhere when Alexandra was lying dead in the bathroom of her home. The police verified that Marcelo already had a criminal record, with a history of homicide and also rape, committed against his own sister.

On 25th November 2021 her ex-partner Marcelo de Almeida Moura was sentenced to 22 years in prison for her murder. He had previously served time in prison for raping his half-sister, and had started threatening Alexandra after being released from prison for that offence.

Marcelo de Almeida Moura was tried and convicted by the Jury of Cuiabá, on Thursday (25), for the murder of [trans woman] and former partner Alexandra Monteiro, whose registered name is [deadname] Correa de Oliveira. In an unprecedented conviction, the defendant was sentenced to 22 years in prison and denied the right to an appeal. In accordance with the complaint of the Public Ministry of Mato Grosso, the Sentence Council recognized the qualifiers of base motive, cruel employment and a crime committed against a “transfeminine person” involving domestic and family violence.
