What happened ?

The facts took place on July 26, 2018. After seven months of tumultuous relationship with the electromechanic, the 27-year-old young woman, from Villeurbanne (Rhône), decided to break up. The day of drama, the couple made an appointment near the Belvédère de la Chambotte, which overlooks Lake Bourget (Savoie) to explain themselves. It’s just that things got out of hand. “She hugged me by the neck, I pushed her away with my right hand, she fell into the void”, he reported during his trial. He then went down to the victim’s body, slapping him twice. “Then I kicked him twice in the head. Out of frustration and dismay”continued the former soldier.

The body of the young woman was discovered by a motorist, firefighter, in the presence of Yann. While she was still breathing, he would have asked her lover to call for help, but the latter refused. If the track of the suicide was initially privileged, the gendarmes finally accepted the thesis of a voluntary and premeditated act.
