Obsessed Costa Blanca officer faces jail for poisoning colleague

A GUARDIA CIVIL officer accused of poisoning a female colleague and her family faces a 30-year sentence if convicted.

Both were stationed at the Guardia Civil headquarters in Villajoyosa and the Brigada (equivalent to a Warrant Officer) was obsessed by her, according to the Public Prosecution department. 

They had known each other since 2010 when the woman was posted to Villajoyosa and in 2011 after she was assigned to Citizens’ Attention, he was her immediate superior.

Until 2016 when the Brigada was promoted and posted elsewhere, both lived in apartments attached to the Villajoyosa headquarters.

He allegedly stalked her for three years, sneaking into her apartment to steal possessions that included her underwear and intimate photos stored on a pen drive.

The obsession took a different direction in 2016, the Public Prosecutor claimed, when the Brigada entered the woman’s home and began adding insecticide to food she had prepared for her husband and three-yearold child.

Noticing for some time that the family’s food tasted and smelt unpleasant, she installed a home security camera.

This showed her superior entering her apartment and adding something to the food which analysis revealed as insecticide.

The Public Prosecutor recommended that the Brigada stand trial on three counts of attempted murder, breaking and entering and invasion of the woman officer’s privacy.
