Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A JEAL­OUS body­builder beat his trans­gen­der es­cort wife to death af­ter she had sex with a client in front of him, a court heard yesterday.

The Old Bai­ley heard that Joaquin GomezHer­nan­dez, 24, burst into tears af­ter wit­ness­ing 33-year-old Vanessa San­til­lan ca­vort­ing with the man at their flat.

Later that day the Mex­i­can di­alled 999 and flagged down an am­bu­lance out­side the cou­ple’s flat in Ful­ham, south­west Lon­don.

Paramedics found Miss San­til­lan ly­ing half-naked on the floor in the lounge next to a used con­dom and bro­ken false fin­ger­nails. IN­JURIES: Vanessa San­til­lan was found half-naked

on floor Her­nan­dez ‘changed and be­came more se­ri­ous’, the court heard.

Gomez-Her­nan­dez then started to cry and told Miss San­til­lan, ‘It’s like you don’t take me se­ri­ously’.

He left at around 7am to con­tinue drink­ing at the friends’ flat while Miss San­til­lan re­mained be­hind.

When Gomez-Fer­nan­dez vis­ited Sains­bury’s in Ful­ham later that day, a mem­ber of staff no­ticed he had a large amount of money in £20 and £50 notes. He also had scratches on his face.

Gomez-Her­nan­dez then vis­ited a brothel in Ful­ham at 4.45pm and had sex with two es­corts, jurors were told.
