MORE details are emerging of the case of the alleged murder of Romanian Dana Leonte.
In a police report given to Spanish media, the decision to jail the boyfriend of Dana Leonte, Sergio Ruiz was made by the judge due to the “gravity of the facts” and that authorities feared he would use his release to destroy further evidence of his guilt.

Evidence to corroborate the story was obtained through police measures such as telephone tapping, geo location devices, testifying and collection of samples from various locations.
It was also pointed out that Sergio falsified text messages supposedly from Dana, and upon investigation of the man’s property there was a strong smell of cleaning products.
News of the emerging facts come a the town of Arenas announced three days of official mourning for the death of Arenas resident Dana.
A minutes silence was also held at 9am on Thursday outside the town hall.
