THE trial of a man accused of threatening to kill an individual working alone goes to court in Palma on Friday, October 30 and the prosecution have asked that he be jailed for five years if found guilty.
The alleged crime goes back to September 2019 when the defendant was said to have broken into an establishment and demanded €30 from the person working there and when refused, he allegedly threatened to kill the individual.
After initially leaving the office, the defendant apparently returned carrying a container full of petrol which he firstly started a small fire with and then threw some of the liquid over the victim and tried to set fire to him using a lighter.
