Irishman faces 18 years for shooting Briton in Mijas

The case following the shooting at the Lounge Bar in Riviera del Sol gets underway in Málaga on July 11

The Málaga Provincial Prosecutor has called for an 18 year prison sentence for a 27 year old Irishman, Eric W. who is accused of shooting a 24 year old Briton, Daniel J. Smith, dead with whom he previously had an argument over a woman in June last year. He also wants the Irishmen to meet the costs and civil responsibility calculated at 45,793 €.

It happened on the terrace of a bar in the Riviera del Sol Urbanisation in Mijas Costa, and the prosecutor alleges that Daniel J.S. returned to the scene with the intention of killing the Briton, taking out a nine mm pistol and firing twice as his victim was trying to get out of his chair. The Briton fell onto the floor and was shot again repeatedly at close range, according to the prosecutor whose view has been printed in the La Opinión de Málaga newspaper.

Daniel J.S. suffered as many as 11 gunshots, two in the jaw, two in the back, one in the buttocks, three in the forearm, two in the scrotum and the last one in the thigh. He died shortly after as one of the shots had punctured his right lung.
The victim was not married and his mother Karen is demanding 300,000 € compensation.

The accused was arrested some days later in Coín, and although the gun was not found the Guardia Civil did find hand grenades and plastic explosives.

The case gets underway before a jury in the Provincial Court in Málaga on July 11. Under Spanish law it is not necessary to prove a motive to find someone guilty of an assassination.
