He was found guilty of having killed his neighbor and friend on Thursday October 31, 2019 in Gouvieux, after an alcoholic evening.

That day, the gendarmes intervened around 10:40 p.m. after complaints from neighbors for cries coming from an apartment located on the ground floor of a building.

The police had discovered a 55-year-old man on the spot who had been stabbed several times.

A nearby individual was then reported and arrested.

Three years in pre-trial detention

Heavily alcoholic, he could not be questioned by the gendarmes.

After three years in pre-trial detention, the man continued to remain silent during the two days of trial, indicate our colleagues.

The Advocate General had requested a twenty-year prison sentence, but the impairment of discernment due to alcohol was finally upheld by the court.
