BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — This was a Valentine's Day wedding that the bride's family wanted no part of: An Argentine woman married the man convicted of killing her twin sister.

Neighbors were against it as well. A mob gathered outside the civil registry office where Thursday's wedding took place, throwing stones and eggs.

Edith Casas says Victor Cingolani is innocent of killing her twin sister Johana two years ago, despite his conviction. He says he will be found innocent on appeal.

Cingolani was taken back to prison in handcuffs immediately after the nuptials. She waited for hours until the crowd dispersed and it was safe to leave.

The bride's mother thinks she's crazy and sought to block the wedding, but a judge found her capable of making her own decisions.
