Tomáš Szabó and Miroslav Marček, who have been accused in the case of murdering investigative reporter Ján Kuciak and his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová, face further charges.

The investigator of the National Anti-Crime Unit of the National Criminal Agency (NAKA) charged them with the first-degree murder of entrepreneur Peter Molnár from Kolárovo (Nitra Region).

The police published the pictures of the discovered murder weapon of their Facebook page.

“The accused men murdered the aggrieved P.M. after a mutual agreement in December 2016, by using a firearm, after they violently invaded his family house with the aim of gaining a property benefit,” the police wrote on the Facebook.
