Jorge “la Hiena” Barrios, detained in the Campana prison for having attacked his former partner, María Soledad Muñoz, is in the news again. It is that the former world champion committed abuse again, this time of his force before an inmate with whom he practiced boxing in the prison yard. The video was broadcast by the World Boxing site on social networks.
Barrios is serving preventive detention after having been denounced by Muñoz and accused of “injuries aggravated by the bond and threats.” Jorge was detained for two months at Police Station 1 in Tigre and was transferred to the Campana prison, where the video that went viral was filmed.
The history of the Hyena
Jorge had already served four years in prison for aggravated manslaughter. It was when he killed Yamila González, who was six months pregnant.
The incident occurred in Mar del Plata on January 24, 2010, at the corner of Avenida Independencia and Ayacucho. “La Hiena” rammed his truck into a Fiat 147 that was about to stop at the traffic light, and it ran over four pedestrians, including the young pregnant woman, who died hours later.
