Football Player Convicted of Murdering Girlfriend Signs New Contract

Article Image: Star Soccer Player Convicted of Murdering Girlfriend Signs New Contract

Earlier this week, Brazilian soccer player Bruno Fernandes de Souza, signed a two-year contract with the club Boa Esporte less than a month after he was convicted of ordering the torture and murder of his ex-girlfriend.
The soccer star conspired with friends to have Samudio killed after she became pregnant with his child and sought financial assistance. Samudio was subsequently kidnapped and tortured in a shed for hours until being strangled to death. Upon Bruno's orders, her body was fed to his dogs.

Bruno was tried and sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2013 after confessing to his role in the 2010 murder of Samudio. Bruno appealed his conviction, though, and was released by the courts while his case reaches the higher courts. According to Bruno's agent, there were many teams attempting to sign the goalkeeper despite his outstanding murder charges.
The signing has sparked massive outrage online with at least three sponsors announcing that they have parted ways with the team. Bruno was and still is a popular star in Brazil, and despite the outrage, many are welcoming him with open arms. For the time being, it seems Bruno is there to stay. What are your thoughts? let us know in the comments.
