JESUS CASTILLO, a 31 year old Spanish man from Calpe has been remanded in custody after confessing to the murder of two prostitutes.
The accused has admitted the killings, where he stabbed to death, a Guinean, and Nigerian, aged 33 and 35 respectively, and if found guilty could face up to 30 years in prison.
According to his testimony, the unemployed man hired the two prostitutes and when he arrived at the Benissa home of one of them, they tried to rob him and in the heated argument which followed, he stabbed them.
Benissa Mayor Juan Bautista Rosello described the town as a “very tranquil village with high levels of security and welfare.”
He confirmed that the detainee was a “well-known resident in the village”, but preferred to wait “to know more of the circumstances of the crime” before further comment.
