THE Slovakian model who shot her millionaire ex boyfriend three times has been found guilty of murder.

Mayka Kukucova, 26, was convicted by a jury in Malaga of killing gold dealer Andrew Bush, 48 at his Estepona home.

She broke down into tears upon hearing the verdict.

She could be jailed for 25 years.

The court had heard there was a violent struggle on the night in question.

During the incident, which took place on April 4, 2014, Kukucova had admitted ‘shots were fired’, but insisted it was in self defence.

Kukucova is then said to have fled in Bush’s Hummer before handing herself in to Slovakian police before being extradited to Spain.

Bush’s daughter and sister, Ellie, 21, and Rachel, 44, embraced as the verdict was announced.
