Police officer Jacqueline Villaseñor was charged with manslaughter after the death of her husband. But the family said that this incident should not be regarded as a major accident, it could have been avoided.
Earlier this month, the 44-year-old German Veraseno received a solemn, heroic farewell. At his funeral, his parents were allowed to enter the United States briefly from Mexico and received a Chicago flag. His heartbroken colleague served as the guardian.
But next is the person who pulled the trigger as the prosecutor said-his wife, colleague Jacqueline Villaseñor (Jacqueline Villaseñor).
“Since they told me that after I entered the house, I saw the room, no, it was not an accident, no,” said Blanca Niña, the German’s aunt. “They need justice.”
Niña said she questioned what the court said-on November 2nd, Jacqueline and German were arguing about a recent extramarital affair in their bedroom, when she grabbed a weapon from her holster and threatened to commit suicide.
The prosecutor said that German tried to grab the weapon and the couple began to struggle. When the gun went off, German was shot in the chest. It seems that Jacqueline has been drinking, but she refuses to be tested.

“She needs to be held accountable, she needs to be locked up, simple and straightforward,” said German uncle Genaro Martinez.
Genaro Martinez was stunned by the charge of involuntary homicide and the fact that she paid $5,000 to bail without electronic surveillance.
“We require her to wear an ankle monitor. If they know that alcohol is involved, they should install an ankle monitor on her. Again, investigate within the maximum scope of the law.”
Julie Contreras of the community organization United Giving Hope worries that Germans of color will not be treated the same if the roles are switched. They are planning to pay close attention to the case. Some German colleagues also united and stood by.
“This is the criminal activity she did, which is unacceptable,” Martinez said.
A spokesperson for the Cook County State Attorney’s Office said she could not comment because the case is under trial. Villaseñor returned to court on Tuesday, and the case lasted until December 2.
