After consulting their client on Thursday July 8, Hubert Caouissin’s lawyers confirm to France Bleu Loire Océan that he will not appeal his conviction to 30 years of criminal imprisonment for the quadruple murder of his brother-in-law, his wife and their two children, in February 2017 in Orvault.
Lawyers visited the murderer at Nantes remand center and describe him as “shaken” after two and a half weeks of a trial “difficult, trying”, who “made him aware of a number of things”.
Convicted of the quadruple murder of Pascal, Brigitte, Sébastien and Charlotte Troadec, Hubert Caouissin was sentenced, Wednesday July 7, to 30 years of criminal imprisonment. Lydie Troadec, his companion who is convicted of receiving corpses and altering the crime scene, is sentenced to 3 years in prison, one of which is suspended.
During the trial Friday, July 2, psychiatric experts examined the personality of the former boilermaker, and thus explain his gesture. This case is “a textbook case of paranoid delirium”, the “common delirium of two wounded of life who repair each other”, thus detailed the doctor Daniel Zagury. However, for all the psychiatrists who examined the accused, the latter remains responsible for his actions. Since his arrest, Hubert Caouissin refutes any premeditation.
