THE Malaga Provincial Court has sentenced a man to 22 years in jail for murdering his partner by stabbing her 15 times with a sewing awl in Torremolinos.The man stabbed the victim while she was still alive and “with the deliberate intention of increasing her pain,” the text of the judgement states.The 52-year-old man admitted to having killed his wife but said that he was under the effects of alcohol when the events took place, back in 2013. The man used a 14-centimetre sawing awl that was on a table. After that, he turned himself in at a nearby National Police station.The prosecutor’s office reminded the judge that the killer already had a criminal record for similar incidents and had been investigated previously for reportedly attempting to kill his own mother.
