IT was one of the biggest crime cases the Costa del Sol has ever seen.
And it is still rumbling on after a woman wrongly convicted of the murder of Mijas teenager Rocio Wanninkof in 1999 was denied €4 million in compensation.
Spain’s National Court has rejected Dolores Vazquez’s claim for the 519 days she spent in prison between 2000 and 2002.
Vazquez was sentenced to 15 years for murdering Rocio, her former lover’s daughter, until new evidence pointed to ‘Costa Killer’ Tony King.
The British man later confessed to the killings of Rocio and Sonia Carabantes, but always insisted Vazquez and his former boss timeshare tout Robbie Graham were involved.
Vazquez – who now lives in the UK – was found guilty on over 30 different pieces of evidence.
She has announced she will appeal to the Supreme Court.
