Barcelona, Spain woman Adaia Lopez Esteve bites boyfriend’s tongue off after break-up is now facing 8 years jail as trial date looms.
A Spanish woman faces the prospect of eight years jail after allegedly biting off her ex boyfriend’s tongue after asking for one last kiss upon the man breaking up with her.
Local media reported Adaia Lopez Esteve, 24 from Barcelona allegedly tearing off her then 42 year old boyfriend’s tongue in June 2017 and spitting it out onto the floor before running away.
Facing eight years prison, the victim’s lawyers have demanded the former girlfriend be jailed for ten years.
The couple met online in December 2016 and endured a tumultuous two-month relationship before parting in February 2017.
The victim, who has not been named, was reportedly ‘fed up of Esteve’s mood swings’.
Shortly after the initial breakup, they restarted their relationship – but the boyfriend decided to break up with her again just four months later.
Esteve is said to have reacted aggressively to his decision, storming out of the flat before returning to apologize for her behavior.
She allegedly then hugged her boyfriend and asked him for one ‘last kiss’, which she took advantage of by biting off his tongue, ripping it out of his mouth and spitting it onto the floor, local newspaper El Taquigrafo reported.
Esteve then ran away, leaving her ex-boyfriend bleeding on the floor.
A neighbor heard the boyfriend’s screams and ran to help- with the man taken to hospital where doctors managed to stop the bleeding.
Esteve was reportedly arrested by Catalan police but refused to give a statement.
She was released but the investigation has now concluded and she has been charged with causing injuries and will be called to the stand in Barcelona Provincial Court the dailymail reported.
Esteve has denied the events and instead has reported her former lover for domestic abuse, saying he had tried to suffocate her as she left his flat.
It is unclear when the trial will take place.
