She is now under investigation over the April death of her boyfriend at his home in an Argentinian town, La Nacion reports.

After being hit by the phone, Guantay complained of headaches and discomfort until he was eventually taken to hospital in the city of Salta

He had an operation for severe brain injuries suffered after being hit in the head but died.

The victim’s mum then went to police asking them to take action against the suspect.

Prosecutors established the blow that Guantay received to his right temple, caused head trauma, resulted in his death.

After being charged Lopez issued a statement in which she denied the offence.

Last month a court in the nearby Argentine city of Tucuman acquitted Jesica Osores of homicide for killing her partner with the same knife he had threatened her with moments earlier.

She was cleared after judges decided she had acted in “self-defence” after being subjected to nine years of domestic abuse by husband Javier Hernan Gomez.

Jesica, 28, had claimed in court: “It was my life or his.”
