Two men are suspected of having raped and then burned a woman whom they spent the end of the evening in her apartment in downtown Voiron, in Isère, on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, the Grenoble prosecutor’s office said, confirming a information from Dauphiné Liberated.

An investigation, entrusted to the judicial police, for “rapes accompanied by torture and acts of barbarism” was opened by the prosecution.

It is around 4 a.m. on Wednesday when firefighters arrive and find the 43-year-old woman lying in her apartment, conscious but seriously injured. His body is 30% burned. She was transferred to the Edouard-Herriot hospital in Lyon and has not, for the time being, been heard by the investigators.
