A guy has been detained in the southwest region of France following what appears to have been the drunken murder of a woman during a game in which she wore a bulletproof vest and was shot at.
The mother of three, who was 47 years old, was discovered dead on Saturday in the town of Montpon-Menesterol, which is located in the Dordogne area of France.
The local prosecutor has stated that the suspect has admitted to using his hunting rifle on Friday night “during a game in which she (the victim) put on a bullet-proof vest before being shot at.” The statement was made by the suspect, according to the local prosecutor.
On Saturday, the shooter, who is 55 years old, presented himself to the authorities while in a “severe state of drunkenness.”
According to prosecutor Solene Belaouar, the decision on the charges that will be brought in the extremely unusual case will be made on Monday.
Two additional guys, ages 18 and 20, who were present at the dinner party on Friday night have also been held for interrogation by the authorities.
It is thought that the woman died as a result of a wound to her stomach.
