A BRITISH man could face 20 years in prison for an alleged sex game death in Magaluf.
Car salesman, Warren Lyttle confessed to killing his wife Lisa in January last year and is soon to stand trial in Palma, Mallorca.
He claims that 49-year-old Lisa, from Kilburn, north London, died during a sex game but Spanish prosecutors believe a different set of events took place and that she was strangled with a phone cord after a row.
Since Lyttle´s confession, prosecutors have harboured suspicions that his story was untrue and believe that the mother of one´s death came as the result a planned attack in which he surprised her and she was unable to defend herself.
They are pushing for a lengthy prison sentence and also want the car salesman to pay more than €180,000 in compensation to the victim´s grown-up daughter.
Lisa regularly travelled to Mallorca to see her expat husband and was just two days into a seven-day visit when the alleged accident occurred.
Lyttle had made the call to emergency services but they were unable to save her.
A post-mortem revealed that she died from asphyxia due to strangulation, a death that her widowed husband attributes to a sadomasochistic game, which she suggested, that went horribly wrong.
On the day of her death, approximately 300 people held a five-minute silence at Calvia Town Hall, condemning the killing.
A friend of the victim, Danie Tsuts-Gordon, took to social media to express his feelings towards the deceased. He said:
“A massive hole in my heart. She was a darling, beautiful inside and out.”
