Va­len­cia stab­ber sen­tenced

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

The man who stabbed his for­mer part­ner to death has been sen­tenced to over 28 years in prison.

He had three chil­dren with his for­mer wife, and af­ter years of mis­treat­ment and gen­der vi­o­lence, she fi­nally de­cided to di­vorce him in Jan­uary 2015.

Just a month later, he waited for her in her house's land­ing, bran­dish­ing a large kitchen knife.

Threat­en­ing her with it, he forced her into the home, and once in­side, stabbed her 85 times.

His sen­tence in­cludes spend­ing 28 years and eight months in prison, not be­ing al­lowed near his chil­dren nor the par­ents of the vic­tim, and com­pen­sat­ing them with €230,000. By Sa­man­tha Kett SUM­MER is only a week old and, al­ready, 40 groups of peo­ple in Gan­dia have been cau­tioned or fined for van­dal­ism, fights, and drunken-dis­or­derly.

Po­lice in Gan­dia started their sum­mer pa­trols at the week­end – an an­nual re­in­force­ment scheme seek­ing to cut anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and noise nui­sance dur­ing the hol­i­day months – and over Satur­day and Sun­day alone, 40 lots of res­i­dents and vis­i­tors got more than a slapped wrist for their ac­tions.

Two fines were levied for bring-your-own-bot­tle street­drink­ing par­ties, known as botel­lones, four for uri­nat­ing in public and two for punch-ups in public.

An­other five cases of noise nui­sance in res­i­den­tial prop- er­ties and seven for ex­ces­sively-loud mu­sic in cars were re­ported, whilst 10 drug-hauls were seized and a con­sign­ment of fake de­signer goods con­fis- cated.

Be­fore the week­end even started, the Red Cross was equally busy with at least 30 cases of al­co­hol poi­son­ing, bruis­ing, burn­ing and other in­juries to deal with on mid­sum­mer bon­fire night on Fri­day.
