Former Brazilian congresswoman guilty of ordering husband’s murder

Celebrity gospel singer Flordelis dos Santos de Souza, famous for her 55 children, given 50-year jail sentence
One of the most famous crimes in recent Brazilian history has come to an end after a former congresswoman was found guilty of ordering the murder of her preacher husband and given a sentence of 50 years and 28 days in prison.
On Sunday, the renowned gospel singer Flordelis dos Santos de Souza, also known as Flordelis, was found guilty of additional crimes, including making at least six unsuccessful attempts to poison Anderson do Carmo with cyanide before giving up and planning his murder.
Do Carmo, 42, was shot numerous times in June 2019 as he entered the gated house they occupied outside of Rio de Janeiro with their large number of children, both biological and adoptive.
Flávio, Flordelis’s son, was given a 33-year prison term last year for using the gun, and Lucas Cezar, his adoptive brother, was given a seven-year sentence for aiding in the purchase of the murder weapon. Cezar’s sentence was lowered as a result of his cooperation with the authorities.
Four additional people—including one biological son and two adoptive sons—were sentenced to prison earlier this year in a case that garnered international attention.
