THE Slovakian former model who was found guilty of murdering her British ex-boyfriend has been sentenced.
A Malaga court has sentenced Mayka Kukucova, 26, to 15 and a half years in prison.
The term includes 6 months for breaking into her ex-lover’s villa in Estepona, where he was found dead and lying in a pool of blood.
Last Friday saw a jury find the former swimwear model guilty of slaying British jeweller Andrew Bush on April 5, 2014.
The prosecution claimed she shot him once in the shoulder and twice in the head in a jealous rage after he arrived home with his new Russian girlfriend.
Kukucova had insisted she was innocent, claiming the gun went off after he confronted her and they became locked in a struggle.
She has been ordered to pay €200,000 to Bush’s daughter and sister, as well as cover the court costs.
