Bratislava I District Court has sentenced former policeman Peter V. to life imprisonment for the brutal murder by burning of his neighbour and rival in love, the SITA newswire wrote on Tuesday, January 31.

According to the prosecution, the murder was a follow-up to a love affair between Peter V. and his neighbour's wife, which she wanted to end. In summer 2008, the policeman blocked his neighbour's car on a road near Plavecký Štvrtok, poured petrol over the driver and set him alight. The victim managed to get out of his car and get to the hospital, but died some days later as a result of severe burns. Before he died, he identified his attacker. The sentenced man denied the crime. The case has lasted since June 2009, and was delayed after two forensic experts expressed differing opinions on the case.
