The Provincial Court of Alicante has condemned the man who killed the ten year old son of his girlfriend in Torrevieja to 18 years in prison. The man, who is 50 years old, admitted what happened during the trial and has been convicted of murder with the aggravating circumstance of kinship.
The sentence, which this publication had access to, also condemns him to compensate the mother of the child with €58,000 and the father with €38,000.
The events occurred in a home in the urbanisation Torrealmendros on the night of May 4th, 2015. According to the sentence, the child’s mother and at the time also his girlfriend had a fierce argument with him. The woman went out into the street to ask for help from her neighbours and the now condemned man took advantage of this to lock the house and stab his girlfriend’s son no less than 18 times, which ended up killing the little ten year old boy.
According to the sentence the child died from blood loss caused by the kitchen knife and had no chance to defend himself.
