Sofía was stabbed by her longstanding partner after an argument. They were subsequently arrested.

A 30-year-old trans woman was stabbed to death this Sunday at noon in the south zone and for the crime she is looking for her partner, a young man who is also trans.

Judicial sources reported that the victim was identified as Sofia Noriega and died after being attacked with a knife in the abdomen area inside her home at 200 Batlle y Ordóñez in barrio General Las Heras.

The crime is investigated by the prosecutor of the Intentional Homicide Unit Adrián Spelta, who gave intervention to the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC). According to the Prosecutor's Office, the victim was with her partner (whose identity data is already in the hands of investigators) inside the home when a heated argument began.

The fight ended when the young [person], a trans [person] named Brandon, stabbed his girlfriend in the abdomen with a knife and then fled on foot, according to the main hypothesis of the investigators. Sofia died inside the scene from her injuries, spokesmen said.
