The teen reportedly fled the family home with a 35-year-old man after her father expressed outrage at their plans to get married.

Local media reported that although Romina told authorities she would be in danger at home and feared for her life, they handed her back as required by the country’s laws. Back at home, it is alleged her father used a sickle to kill her.
