Another lady had been violently assaulted, in the same way, and had been seriously injured. The room being rented by the day for the purpose of prostitution, the investigation made it possible to get hold of Nicolas M., 29, a client. Charged with murder and attempted murder, the man denied any involvement in the case, although he admitted to having met one of the victims that day.
