A WOMAN is facing life behind bars for the brutal murder of a pensioner in Rincon de la Victoria.
The unidentified 60-year-old woman has been found guilty of stabbing and slitting the throat of 70-year-old Dolores Ruiz in broad daylight in December 2013.
The murder happened on La Cala del Moral’s promenade and is believed to have taken place following an argument over a €4,000 debt owed for jewellery.
The convicted – described as blonde and of average height – allegedly stole her victim’s handbag and jewellery, including a €2,500 gold watch, before fleeing the scene with her hands covering her face.
The prosecution has requested a life sentence is handed out.
