Former MLB pitcher Sergio Mitre has been sentenced to 40 to 60 years in prison after being found guilty of the rape and murder of the young daughter of his former girlfriend.
The attack took place in July 2020 in Saltillo, Mexico. The 22-month-old victim died of hypovolemic shock, according to Mexican magazine Proceso. The prosecutor’s office reportedly said that she suffered abdomen and back injuries, as well as a ruptured artery which led to internal bleeding, in the attack, per El Heraldo de Saltillo.
She was rushed to the hospital, where she died, after initially being diagnosed with stomach pain.
Mitre, 40, pitched in the MLB from 2003 to ’11, ending his career with the Yankees. The Los Angeles-born pitcher made a comeback in ’17, pitching in the Mexican Baseball League through ’19.
The league and his most recent club, Saraperos de Saltillo, suspended him indefinitely after the charges were filed in 2020.
