The 21-year-old saw his father and mother, Nicola Turetta and Elisabetta Martini, on his eighth day in Verona Montorio prison. They were supposed to meet a few days ago, but neither he nor they were ready. The conversation would have lasted about an hour, between tears, hugs and the promise of seeing each other again. Tomorrow, December 5, Cecchettin’s funeral in Padua. “I only wanted her for myself,” Turetta reportedly told the magistrates when talking about the murder.
Filippo Turetta saw his parents again, Nicola Turetta and Elisabetta Martini. They were supposed to meet a few days ago, then the visit was postponed because neither he nor they were ready. In the end it happened yesterday, December 3, when Turetta – 21 years old – began his eighth day in Montorio prison, in Verona, where he is accused of aggravated homicide and kidnapping for having killed, as he confessed, his ex-girlfriend . , Giulia Cecchettin. The interview with the parents lasted one hour. There were tears and hugs, it was learned. “Thank you for coming to see me,” Turetta said that, since he was extradited to Italy, he continued to ask to see them. Tomorrow, December 5, Cecchettin’s funeral will be held in the Basilica of Santa Giustina in Padua, the city where both she and Turetta studied biomedical engineering (ALL THE ISSUE ON GENDER VIOLENCE).
The meeting in prison between Turetta and his parents
According to reports, Turetta would have repeated to his parents the words he already used with the magistrates: “I have to pay everything until the end, I did something terrible, I lost my mind, but I didn’t want to and I know it.” that you will never be able to forgive me.” They left the prison crying, thanking the prison police officers for their work in custody and promising their son that they would return.
A few days ago Turetta was questioned by investigators for nine hours. At the moment no interrogation is planned: the magistrates considered what emerged exhaustive. He said he “lost his mind” that night of Saturday, November 11. Cecchettin had told her once again that their relationship was over. He should have stopped following her, the psychological blackmail had to stop. Turetta allegedly said that he was “obsessed” with her, that he wanted her “just for himself” and that he did not accept “the end of the story.” Now we have to see what the judges will think. With premeditation or other aggravating circumstances – such as cruelty or nefarious motives – the maximum sentence for Turetta would go from 30 years, that is, that of the current charges, to life imprisonment. The autopsy performed on the girl’s body confirmed that she died from hemorrhage: twenty stab wounds inflicted by Turetta, one of which, on her neck, was considered fatal.
