Perhaps they knew each other, because from a first reconstruction they were seated at the same table when Medhi hounafi, a 34-year-old of Moroccan descent, got up and stabbed Carmen De Giorgi, aged 44, killing her and injuring two other friends who were with her in the club. It all happened last night in a bar Luserna San Giovanni, in the Pinerolese area, in Piedmont, and the reasons that led to the fury of the man who was then arrested by the Carabinieri are not yet clear, even if the main suspicion is that it is a rejected courtship.
The military forces are trying to ascertain why the man was at the table with the women. The hypothesis is that they knew each other and that the 34-year-old approached with some advance which were then rejected. The latter is the most accredited hypothesis, with the man who, after being rejected, according to an initial reconstruction hit the victim in the back, hurting the others who had tried to defend her, before fleeing. The customers of the restaurant gave the alarm and the Pinerolo carabinieri stopped the man in the street, not too far from the restaurant in via I Maggio.
