A couple has been jailed, after they were convicted of murdering a businessman whom they buried alive.
According to Dailystar, the couple, named Candy Arrieta, 34, and Mohammed Achraf, 35, lured their victim through a dating app, Badoo, to their home in Spain.
The businessman, Delgado Fresnedo, had been chatting with Arrieta and accepted her invite to her home.
On getting there,Fresnedo met Achraf, who kidnapped and tortured him.
The couple took Fresnedo to the town of Pedrola, where they lived and had a workshop.
There, they demanded that the businessman hand over his bank cards and passwords and beat him when he refused. They then assaulted him with blunt objects.
The next day, Achraf put the victim’s Mercedes 220 up for sale on an online portal and agreed a price of €21,000 (£17,666) with a buyer. He has reportedly forwarded a deposit of €11,000 (£9250).
After being beaten and tortured, the victim was dumped in the car boot and taken to the area of Barranco del Lobo where the defendants dug a hole and buried him alive.
His body was found with the help of an ankle bracelet he was forced to wear after he was accused of beating his ex-wife
An autopsy found Fresnedo had received head trauma and nine broken ribs along with injuries from being tied up. Dirt was found in his lungs after being buried alive.
The couple was sentenced both to 25 years in prison for murder, six years for kidnapping, and three for fraud.
