Jean-Luc, the main suspect for the murder of Marine Calmette, Friday in Saint-Orens-de-Gameville in Haute-Garonne, has just been indicted for murder. But he rejects the idea of a premeditated act contrary to the version of Lucas, the miraculous boyfriend.
Did Jean-Luc premeditate the murder of Marine Calmette this Friday evening in Saint-Orens-de-Gameville, near Toulouse? Four days after the knife attack that claimed the life of this 20-year-old girl, the scenario of this morbid evening is becoming clearer.
Facing the gendarmes of the Villefranche-de-Lauragais research brigade, Jean-Luc, 27, obviously acknowledged the facts. Of the few confidences requested he consented, all would be linked to a debt of money. This West Indian, defended by Me Myriam Merzougui-Lafarge, would have gone to 60 route de Lalande by chance. He would have found himself in the corner and would have decided to discuss with Marine. At the heart of the debates, a debt of 1800 € contracted by Mégane, the girlfriend of Jean-Luc.
At the time when she lived in a shared apartment with Marine Calmette, Mégane would have asked her for an advance without ever reimbursing her. The victim and the thirties would have tried to find a solution by discussing in the kitchen. Then the situation suddenly got out of hand. In an excess of rage as sudden as it is inexplicable, the alleged murderer grabbed a long knife before attacking Marine. When Lucas got there, he applied himself to the killer for the cork. During his intervention, he was hit by fifteen stab wounds. But the 22-year-old catering worker was lucky enough to extricate himself from the chaos after he was unlucky enough to be thrown into it. The young man has been doing much better since Saturday evening.
A debt of 1800 €
As proof, this Sunday, Lucas could be heard from his hospital bed. Nearly three hours of interrogation which undermine the version of the main suspect. His hearing suggests that his act was a planned killing, carried out with coldness. First revelation: Jean-Luc sent several enamored messages to Marine a few days before. But for the moment, no direct link has been established between these SMS and his acting out.
Another element suggests premeditation. He would have come to the home with gloves despite the ambient heat. And these gloves would have been found around the house, bloody… Questioned by the gendarmes, Jean-Luc explained that he used them when he was cycling. His lawyer will experience difficulties in dismissing the trail of the assassination. These issues will be explored by soldiers during training. The case is now in the hands of a judge. This Monday, Jean-Luc is indicted for murder. He will not escape pre-trial detention. “My client should not have killed Marine. This man with no criminal record does not explain his action. Above all, he apologizes to the family of the two victims. He is someone who is calm and normally uneventful”, warns Me Myriam Merzougui-Lafarge.
A psychiatric expertise was requested.
