IOAN Ciotau has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for the murder of his wife, Lucía Patrascu, in Port de Pollença (Mallorca) on May 29, 2016. 

According to a Palma judge, ‘a sudden aggression took place’ in a place where the victim had ‘no way out’.

It was said that the sentence ‘highlights the coldness of the defendant, who dealt the last stab wound when the victim was already dying, clinging to the balcony railing and unable to move’.

The court heard the attack came after a heated discussion about where Lucia had spent the previous night, prompting Ciotau, 60, to grab a 16 cm long knife which he used to stab Lucia several times in the back.
