The maximum sentence is the minimum to pronounce

”: the Advocate General on Wednesday March 15 requested life imprisonment with a security period of 22 years against Ibrahima Ba for having killed his ex-partner, pregnant, who had redone her life with another man.

On Sunday, August 4, 2019, while coming to pick up their seven-year-old son, Ibrahima Ba, 35, separated from Chloé for six years, seized a handgun hidden in a manhole and shot the 29-year-old woman four times.

Lynaïs, it's not a fetus, it's a child.

Two shots in the chest, two in the abdomen of the eight-month-pregnant victim: Chloe should have given birth a few weeks later to a little girl that she and her new companion had chosen to call Lynaïs.

We are well beyond a “feminicide”.

Added to this is the perverse manipulation of a common child and the death of an unborn child.

Lynaïs, it's not a fetus, it's a child

, ”said Advocate General Vinciane de Jongh before the Assize Court of Bouches-du-Rhône, where Ibrahima Ba has been on trial since Monday.

Entrusted to his maternal grandparents, the couple's son still does not get rid of a feeling of guilt, said the lawyer for his ad hoc administrator.

It was through a drawing representing his mother with a big belly and his unborn little sister that the little boy had told his father of the pregnancy of his ex-partner.


What chaos in the head of this little guy who feels responsible for the death of his mother

," said Vinciane de Jongh.

To his son, the accused had announced that he was going to prison: "

It's mom's fault

", he had told him.

no remorse

Faced with the jurors, the accused, who showed no remorse, assumed his act, considering that he had warned his ex-companion that she should not start a new life as long as she took care of of their son: "

Under the same conditions, if I had to do it again, maybe I would do it again


A sentence of 18 months in prison, therefore suitable for electronic surveillance, was also requested against a second defendant tried for failure to prevent a crime.

This man who was the companion for eight years of the twin sister of Chloé, also condemned for domestic violence on another companion, denies having had knowledge of the criminal plan of Ibrahima Ba against Chloé.

He had warned several people not to sell him a gun.

The floor is with the defense, before the verdict expected at the end of the day Wednesday.
