Seven people were charged with homicide in connection to soccer legend Diego Maradona’s death.
Maradona was only sixty at the time of his death. He died of heart failure just two weeks after undergoing brain surgery. Argentinian police raided his surgeon’s home and private clinic and it appears they have found enough evidence to prove that Dr. Luque warrants homicide charges. Reports by ESPN confirm that the doctor was charged with “simple homicide with eventual intent.” All seven people that were charged face up to 25 years in prison.
It is believed that Maradona’s medical team did not take proper care of the soccer legend following his brain surgery. Prosecutors believe that his death could have been prevented had he not been given insufficient medical care.
The case will reportedly be presented to a judge on May 31.
