THE MAN accused of killing his aunt, uncle and their children, aged one and four, before posing for a selfie over their dead bodies, has been declared guilty in court.
The Provincial Court of Guadalajara heard allegations that the Brazilian, Patrick Nogueira, had chopped up the bodies and packed them up into rubbish bags.
After approximately two days of deliberation the jury, made up of nine men and two women, emerged with their verdict just after 8pm this evening (Saturday).
The jury decided that Patrick Nogueira had “intentionally” killed his family on August 17 2016 and was guilty of all charges.
The judge presiding over the case will now sentence Nogueira accordingly, it is thought by the Spanish media that Nogueira will receive a ‘permanent prison‘ sentence.
The defence has requested a 40-year minimum sentence.
