Judge sends the three men arrested for the murder of Samuel Luiz straight to prison without bail.
The Coruña Provincial Prosecutor’s Office has requested that the three men arrested for the murder of young Samuel Luiz on the Riazor Beach promenade be admitted to prison without bail and the judge agreed.
The only one the prosecutor has not asked to be admitted to jail is the woman arrested for allegedly cheering while attacking the young man. In addition to these four detainees, the National Police also arrested two minors, who will go before the magistrate in the next few hours, because unlike the rest of the detainees, juvenile jurisdiction does not allow them to spend the night in jail due to their ages.
Regarding the classification of the crime, sources from the Superior Court of Justice of Galicia have reported that the judge will determine whether it is homicide or murder throughout the investigation of the case.
The only one who has not been sent to prison, the woman, was ordered to court by the judge since the Prosecutor’s Office had not requested she be detained.
Court of Instruction Number 1 of La Coruña Instruction 8, is the place where the actual trial will be held and a heavy police presence will be required due to the sensitivity of the case.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
