I'm having trouble translating this from spanish to english

Spanish: "El asesinato de Hipatia qued? impetu, Orestes solicit? su jubilacion y a Cirilo se le canoniz? tiempo despues."

My attempt to english: "The assassination of Hypatia remained unpunished, Orestes requested his retirement and he canonized Cyril after some time. "

is this correct'

And just for the record, my "There is a Spanish word ímpune" was a typo for "There is a Spanish word ímpetu."

So we're even!

Natasha is right; qued? impetu can't mean "remained unpunished." If that is the intended meaning, it is likely an error for "qued? impune," since quedar impune does indeed mean to go unpunished. There is a Spanish word ímpune, but it just doesn't fit here (it means impetus, among other things).

The end of the sentence is: and Cyril was canonized after some time.

quedó ímpetu has me stumped.
