He is accused of having poisoned a young woman with premeditation on the night of October 2 to 3, 2019 in a accommodation and reintegration center in Vitré (Ille-et-Vilaine).

A 35-year-old man, of no fixed address, has been on trial since Monday before the Assize Court of Ille-et-Vilaine in Rennes.

On the evening of the tragedy, several residents of the center met in a room to share alcohol and narcotics, reports

During the evening, the accused allegedly made the victim take “five or six tablets of methadone”, a potentially lethal dose.

The accused admitted the facts before recanting

The young woman then returned to her room before being discovered in cardiorespiratory arrest the next morning by her companion.

Rescuers were unable to resuscitate her.

Arrested a few days later when he had fled, the accused initially admitted to having deliberately poisoned the young woman before retracting and charging another individual.

The verdict is expected Wednesday at the end of the day.

The individual faces life imprisonment.
