MISE & Agrave; DAY
The only person who had the time and the opportunity to stab Nadia Panarello to death in Laval, in 2004, is her husband Ernesto Fera, insisted the prosecution in his plea which ended yesterday at his trial.
“Who had the opportunity to commit the murder? Who had the opportunity? Who had a reason? Who profited from the crime? There is only one answer to these questions: Ernesto Fera & nbsp; ”, launched Me & nbsp; Alexandre Dubois, at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse.
The 55-year-old man is accused of the premeditated murder of his wife, on February 12, 2004, in the Vimont district.
The 38-year-old woman was stabbed 30 & nbsp; before being found inert before- noon by her poor mother.
That morning, only the then 37-year-old man was able to kill her in the master bedroom bathroom, according to the lawsuit.
“If the court agrees that no one was able to enter the house because all the doors and windows were locked, that is sufficient to find Mr. Fera guilty. The analysis stops there “, said Me & nbsp; Dubois. & Nbsp;
The latter also argues that Fera would have had the audacity to perform discreetly while his younger, elderly age 10, had lunch downstairs.
“After that, the accused is in control. He does not have a choice. His daughter is downstairs. He makeup the scene in the robbery scene and cleans the knife in the sink [in his daughters bathroom] before going downstairs to put it in the dishwasher, “he suggested.
< p> Contradictions
In addition to the expediency, the lawsuit considers that Fera had an important motive: the money, which was crumbling in debt.
He tried to get a loan of $ 120,000 two days before the tragedy, which is not a “coincidence”, according to the Crown. He also repaid all his debts in the months that followed with his wife's life insurance policies.
Me Dubois also raised the contradictions in the statements of the accused. In particular, about the place where he had last seen his wife.
The version that Fera gave to his colleague, while he was in “reaction” mode, according to the lawsuit, differs from those he offered to the police and his sister-in-law.
Judge James Brunton will deliver his verdict on December 15.
