Life in jail for killers of handball player Marian Cozma

The court in Veszprem, Hungary, decided today (Thurs) to sentence to life in jail Sandor Raffael and Gyozo Nemeth, for the murder of Romanian handball player Marian Cozma.

A third person indicted in the case, Ivan Sztojka, received 20 years in jail.

Four more people were sentenced to between two and five years in jail.

The sentences are not final, they can be appealed against.

Marian Cozma was stabbed to death in a brawl in a bar in Veszprém, Hungary, in February 2009.

The man arrested by police, Sandor Raffael, claimed he had not stabbed anyone and had not had a knife, judge Balazs Nemeth said, quoted by MTI.

Romanian Marian Cozma, 26, was playing for local team MKB Veszprem, and was stabbed in the heart on 8 February 2009, at the Patriota bar, in Veszprém, in a brawl in which his team colleagues Zarko Sesum and Ivan Pesic were also severely injured.

Hunagrian prosecutors indicted two men for complicity, two for attempted murder, one for murder and two others for helping the suspects flee the country.
