Supplicates "self-defense". On 5 October 2017, Daniel Malgouyres, owner of the gardens of Saint-Adrien, a 4-hectare estate in Servian, shot dead one of the two men who came to steal the property and who had them beaten up, his wife Françoise and him. Imploring "self-defense", he was first indicted for "murder" and left free under judicial control.
But the second thief, arrested in Perpignan and indicted in mid-October 2017, accused him of organizing the robbery. Daniel Malgouyres was later indicted and imprisoned on October 20 for complicity in the attempted robbery. But in mid-December 2017, the Investigation Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Montpellier had pointed out that in French law there could be no theft between spouses, while holding him in detention.
The investigation with multiple twists takes place against the background of the tumultuous separation of the couple, which has been torn apart for months.
