A man accused of burning his ex-girlfriend alive in Lima has been arrested in Colombia. Venezuelan Sergio Tarache Parra, 19, allegedly doused 18-year-old Katherine Gomez with gasoline and set her alight on a central square on 18March after she broke up with him. Gomez died six days later with burns to 60% of her body. Peruvian police offered a $12,500 reward for information leading to Tarache’s capture, and an Interpol red notice was issued. Peru registered 136 femicides in 2022, with similarly high numbers in previous years.
