A JURY has passed a guilty verdict for a man accused of murdering his girlfriend, who was director of the Museum of Nerja at the time, at her Torrox home in August 2014 by stabbing her 131 times.
The jury declared that the crime was one of cruel, cold-blooded murder and also found him guilty of domestic violence.
Both the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Junta de Andalucia have requested a 28 year jail sentence.
Forensic experts who carried out a post mortem examination on the victim stated that she died after ‘inhuman suffering,’ and concluded that the wounds she bore proved she suffered a vicious attack intended to cause as much unnecessary suffering as possible.
Doctors and psychiatrists who examined the accused stated that although he had depression there were no signs of psychosis or mental disorder and classed his apologies in court as ‘selfish.’
