In Italy, a 24-year-old Nigerian gay man, Desmond Newthing, who is requesting for asylum in order to avoid being persecuted in Italy, has been arrested following the murder of his older partner.
The Italian police in Bologna have arrested Newthing, on suspicion of killing Lanfranco Chiarini, a 76-year-old entrepreneur who was found dead on Tuesday, January 3, in his villa on the hills of Castel San Pietro.

According to reports by local media, it would seem that Chiarini died as a result of about thirty stab wounds inflicted by Newthing, as the autopsy results confirmed that the death occurred after he had received several stabs on the neck.
No one knows the motive that prompted the alleged perpetrator to kill the employer, but it is possible that before the crime the two were sleeping with each other.
