Swimsuit model claims to have killed British millionaire in self-defence

Slovak swimsuit model Mária Kukučová, aged 24, charged with murder of British millionaire and former boyfriend Andrew Bush, 48, claimed that she killed Bush in self-defence, the topky.sk website wrote on April 10. The case of Kukučová has received significant coverage in media abroad. The young model claimed to have entered into a heated argument with Bush who supposedly physically assaulted her before she shot him dead. Kukučová allegedly travelled to his villa in Spain to discuss alimony, as she’s pregnant with his child. Kukučová voluntarily surrendered herself to police on April 8, accompanied by her new boyfriend. After interrogation, she was escorted to Faculty Hospital in Trenčín for a medical examination of bruises supposed to corroborate her version of being physically attacked by Bush.

Kukučová is accused of shooting Bush dead with two shots from a pistol. She’s currently in custody. Shortly, a hearing of Trenčín court is to determine whether or not she will be extradited to Spain for criminal prosecution; which she tries to avoid, citing Bush’s influence in both Spain and the UK as the reason of her apprehension. Kukučová is alleged by Slovak media to have told the court she learned about Bush’s death only after she had left Spain.
