Trial for beating man to death in Palma

0

A MAN, 57, is facing 15 years in prison for allegedly killing another in a shanty town in Palma during an argument. 

The events took place in July 2014, when the accused allegedly punched the victim twice and when he fell to the floor, hit him repeatedly on the head with a metal bar, killing him instantly. 

The two men were at a settlement for the homeless and the accused claims he can’t remember a thing because he had drunk more than two bottles of vodka with a friend, as well as several beers. 

He said in court that he had no intention of killing the victim. He is charged with manslaughter and if found guilty may have to pay the victim’s relatives €120,000.
