Iria Suarez-Gonzalez became one of Spain’s most notorious killers after she and a friend were convicted of the savage murder of a schoolgirl in 2000.
Media reports from the time said the stabbing of teenager Clara Garcia was driven by Iria and her friend, who wanted to know 'what it would feel like to kill someone'.And, when released, obviously wanted to know what it felt like to move to another country and start teaching their kids...
Years later, this newspaper can reveal the 35-year-old of Botley Road, Oxford, went on to become a teaching assistant at West Oxford Primary School.Whoops!
She was back in court in February this year, facing one count of fraud by false representation for allegedly not disclosing the murder as a previous conviction in her initial job application to the school.
At a hearing at Oxford Crown Court this week, however, the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case altogether accepting that there was 'no evidence' to convict her.You mean, she did disclose it?
A spokesperson for the CPS said: "We keep all cases under continuous review so we can consider any new information that comes to light.
"In this instance, it emerged Ms Suarez-Gonzalez’s conviction was spent which resulted in the charges being dropped.”
Under Spanish law, all crimes committed by minors can be expunged after 10 years once the offender reaches the age of 18.Handy if you feel like getting a job working with children. But Google is forever.
Following the hearing, Oxfordshire County Council – which overseas the school – pointed the finger at the school and said hiring staff was its responsibility.You all dropped the ball on this one. As usual.
