An 87-year-old lady had just been stabbed in the back by Etienne, her 78-year-old husband. The latter then turned the knife against him by disemboweling himself to end his life. An unbearable scene.
The SMUR doctors had provided first aid on the spot to the two wounded who had been taken to hospitals in the Liège region. Their days were considered to be in danger.
Thursday, at the end of the afternoon, nothing was known of the reason for this stab in the back since both the victim and the author who had tried to put an end to his life were, one and the other, inaudible.
Friday afternoon, investigating judge Vandeweerd placed Étienne under an arrest warrant for attempted murder on his hospital bed.
>> Étienne confessed: here is what he explained to the investigators.
>> “They had been together for 60 years”: here is all we know about this drama.
