The custody of the 36-year-old man, suspected of having killed his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend on Friday in Bordeaux with a stabbing, who had twice lodged a complaint against him for harassment, was extended on Saturday in mid- day, we learned from the prosecution. On Monday, he had already been taken into police custody after a complaint from his ex-partner and mother of their 4-year-old daughter, Sandra P., and was not allowed to see her.
The thirty-something, Mickaël F., is currently being heard in the premises of the judicial police in Bordeaux. He is suspected of having fatally stabbed his ex-girlfriend on Friday around 9:00 am at her home, a small house in a residential area of Bordeaux. The ex-spouse with whom the young woman had been separated since January was arrested shortly after by the Raid police while he was holed up in his apartment, 400 m. further on, in the town of Mérignac. A rally in front of the victim’s house is scheduled for Sunday at 4 p.m.

Sentenced six times (narcotics, traffic offenses), the ex-spouse had never been convicted of violence. But since the beginning of the year, the victim said he had been harassed and had twice reported to the police and the prosecution the behavior of his ex-companion. On January 6, she filed a first complaint testifying to the “multiple messages” that her ex-companion, Mickaël F. sends her and “which worries her”, explained to AFP the public prosecutor Frédérique Porterie. “There are no death threats or threats of violence”, according to the magistrate, but “An insistence on obtaining explanations” on their separation and the custody of their daughter. This procedure “was the subject of an orientation of classification under condition for him to engage in a follow-up (…) therapeutic” and “to make an internship” for “perpetrators of domestic violence”, explains the prosecutor. .
