Two Hitmen Sentenced for Marbella Murder

Two contract killers have been handed prison sentences of 18 and 17.5 years respectively for the murder of Milos P. in central Marbella. The pair confessed to the killing, stating they were paid a substantial sum for the act. The victim was shot a dozen times while crossing a street, according to the verdict issued by the Malaga provincial court, as seen by SUR.

Details of the Crime

The court documents reveal that on June 2, 2020, the culprits rode a Suzuki motorcycle to the vicinity of Calle Arturo Rubinstein to execute the crime. They lay in wait until 1:50 pm when they spotted the victim. One of the culprits remained with the motorcycle to ensure a quick getaway while the other approached Milos P. from behind. The shooting began as the victim was crossing a pedestrian lane. The assailant fired four shots into the victim’s back, causing him to fall, and continued firing. The victim died on the spot, and the two culprits fled on their motorcycle.

Guilty Plea and Sentencing

The two culprits concealed their identities with caps and masks as part of their plan to avoid detection. The provincial court had scheduled a jury trial for the two culprits on Monday, but it was unnecessary as both pleaded guilty. One received a sentence of 18 years and the other 17.5 years. The judges stated in their verdict that the victim was “defenseless as he was ambushed from behind” and “had no opportunity to respond.”

Victim’s False Identity

The police investigation, as reported by SUR, was fraught with uncertainties from the start, as the victim was using a false identity while in Spain. Initially identified as Slavisa Z., a 40-year-old Bosnian, as per his passport, his real name was Milos P., and he was a native of Montenegro. He had previously been convicted under the false identity for drug trafficking in Spain.

Background of the Victim

Milos P. reportedly arrived in Spain in 2013 as Slavisa Z. and was arrested a year later in Ceuta waters on a boat carrying 31 kilos of cocaine. His case was assigned to a special unit of the National Police dedicated to resolving disputes on the Costa del Sol. Once Milos’ true identity was uncovered, it became apparent to investigators that his murder was a result of a deep-seated feud between Balkan clans that had resulted in a series of murders across Europe. Milos was allegedly a member of one of these groups, although he was not considered a high-ranking member.

Arrest of the Culprits

Investigators were able to identify the alleged hitmen, who left the province after the murder. With assistance from their colleagues in Barcelona and Girona, they located both in Catalonia, where they were arrested just a month after the crime.
