Luigi Spaccarotella has been accused of murder (omicidio volontario) according to his lawyer, speaking a short time ago.
Eyewitnesses confirm that they saw him take aim and fire 'at person height', his arms outstretched and his gun held firmly in both hands. Spaccarotella denies aiming at anyone. But the tide seems to be shifting against him: the local chief prosecutor has described his actions as 'unforgiveable.'
Meanwhile the driver of the car, one of Sandri's friends, has been discussing his crucial eyewitness testimony. "We had just set off from the service station when unexpectedly, turning to my left, I saw someone standing motionless on a small mound, with a pistol held in both hands pointing in our direction. I was driving and so I turned back to look ahead of me. Only a fraction of a second hand passed. It was then that I heard a dull thud. But we hadn't realised what had happened, and I continued to drive."
