Marital murder in Lannédern: the accused sentenced to two years in prison – Lannédern
At the assizes of Finistère, the jurors deliberated for nearly six hours, Friday, May 26. A verdict which fell around 11 p.m. The court’s decision? Marie-Luce Bougrer, a 31-year-old single mother, was found guilty of beatings which resulted in the intentional death of her partner, Jean-Noël Farescour, a man who was then 27 years old in moment of the drama.
A mortal blow to defend oneself
A tragedy that occurred on the night of November 7 to 8, 2017, in social housing in Lannédern, a small town in Finistère nestled south of the Arrée mountains. During yet another argument, the 30-year-old had stabbed the victim with a fatal stab in the stomach, piercing the liver with a knife about 33 cm long.
A blow that she had carried for, according to her, to defend herself while her spouse, whom she wanted to leave, strangled her and slapped her. During her hearings, the accused had described a daily life of physical violence committed by the victim. A version confirmed by several witnesses.
For these facts, his lawyer, Me Nathalie Greff, had pleaded self-defense. A thesis which had nevertheless been rejected out of hand by the Advocate General, Jean-Luc Lennon, who had requested five years in prison, including four years with a simple reprieve, without a warrant of deposit. Friday, after two days of trial, the 30-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison, including three years suspended. But his warrant of committal was not ordered.
The brother was acquitted
Facing the Assize Court of Finistère, the woman was not alone at the bar. She was accompanied by Jocelyn Farescour, a 34-year-old fisherman, who is none other than the victim’s brother. The latter was prosecuted for failure to assist a person in danger. On the evening of the tragedy, he had not called the emergency services at the request of his brother because of his consumption of alcohol and cannabis. His brother will succumb to his injuries a few hours later. On Friday, he was acquitted by the Assize Court of Finistère.
