(ANSA) - Rome, October 9 - The Filipino former manservant of
an Italian countess killed in 1991 has had his 16-year sentence
for murder upheld by an appeals court in Rome.
The case of Countess Alberica Filo della Torre was one of
Italy's most celebrated cold cases before it was reopened on DNA
evidence last year, and ex-manservant Manuel Winston confessed.
After years of inaction, the Filipino was put in the frame
by DNA taken from a bloodstained bed sheet and from his
trousers.
Prosecutors, who had asked for a life sentence, said the
countess, a well-known Roman socialite, intended to report
Winston for theft and he reacted by killing her on July 10,
1991.
