A court in Alicante heard how a man ran over and killed a friend after a drunken argument escalated out of control. The incident happened in Mutxamel where the pair had been drinking heavily and started to row, apparently about who should pay for the drinks. At some stage one of the men got into his four by four vehicle and ran over the other, even returning to run him over three more times. The court heard that were certain extenuating circumstances including “temporary insanity” due to the amount of alcohol consumed and that the 66 year old attacker suffers from mild dementia. He was sentenced to eight years in jail after being found guilty of murder as well as drink driving and road safety offences.
