A HUNTER who shot dead two rural agents in Spain in January 2017 has been sentenced to 45 years in prison and ordered to pay compensation of over a million euros to the families of the victims.
The court in Lleida found Ismael Rodriguez guilty of the charges against him and has ordered him to be locked up for 22 years for each of the two murders, plus one year in prison for a crime of illegal possession of a shotgun and a €1,080 fine for a crime against fauna.
Rodriguez has also been ordered to pay more than €1million in compensation to the relatives of the victims.
The court heard that Rodriguez surprised the agents with the attack which happened so quickly that they could not even activate the alarm button on their radio.
Each agent was shot twice after Rodriguez reloaded his shotgun.
