He had been wanted by the Swiss authorities for several weeks. A 27-year-old Frenchman was indicted and jailed Wednesday night in Paris on suspicion of killing his father-in-law with 19 stab wounds in Switzerland, AFP learned on Thursday from sources close to the case.

Switzerland had reported to France on November 29 to search for this young man after the discovery of the body of the victim, aged 66, confirmed the Paris prosecutor's office. The man was found dead on November 20 in his home with 19 stab wounds, according to two sources close to the case.

An argument "the day before the tragedy"

According to one of the sources, the man was the former partner of the suspect's mother, who regularly hosted her stepson and supported him. "The day before the tragedy, the father-in-law and the suspect had an argument," the source said. When Switzerland confirmed the death of the victim, a few days later, the suspect "had already left for France".

On 1 December, a judicial investigation was opened in Paris. And on December 5, the National Fugitive Search Brigade arrested the suspect, the prosecutor's office said.

Remanded in custody

Indicted for murder, the young man, wearing a two-tone sports jacket and a brown goatee, was brought before a liberty and detention judge who placed him in pre-trial detention. Since his arrest, he has not spoken out and has not admitted the facts, a source close to the case said. Contacted by AFP, his lawyer could not immediately be reached.

In addition to his pre-trial detention, the Department for the Execution of Sentences "carried out (...) one year of detention that remained to be served on him from previous sentences and which had not yet been notified to him," the prosecutor's office said.
