Amber Andujar, 14, was defiant in the New Jersey courtroom where Osvaldo Rivera, 35, was given the sentence for a catalog of crimes including murder, attempted murder and aggravated sexual assault.

Rivera sliced open the throat of Dominick Andujar, six, who tried to stop the attack after he broke into their home in Camden, New Jersey in September 2012.

 

He was raping Amber, then 12, in a downstairs living room while holding a knife to her throat when Dominick intervened.

She tried to escape after he attacked, but Rivera also slashed her throat – though she survived.

Speaking in court, Amber was close to tears as she confronted Rivera, the Courier Post reported. She said:

 “Today I stand here as a survivor. Even though he took a part of me away, in the end, you did not win.”
