    The Malaga Provincial Court has sentenced the Irishman accused of killing his wife by throwing her over a hotel balcony in Marbella eight years ago and found guilty of involuntary manslaughter at the beginning of the month to two years in prison. However, he may be able to avoid going inside if he pays the compensation set by the judge, judicial sources told Efe.
    Michael Dermot McArdle has been ordered to pay 100,000 euros to the victim’s parents and 60,000 euros to each of his two sons whose mother was his late wife but he may not actually have to go to prison if he abides by the Spanish law and pays up given that he did not have a criminal record in Spain.
    The judicial sources said that the three parties involved – the Malaga prosecution, the defence and the private prosecution are waiting to see if the Irishman appeals the sentence given by the judge.

    I understand from what I have read that if it were not for the relatives of the dead woman kicking up a fuss the Spanish Police would have dropped the case. This is despite a british couple coming forward to say they had seen him pushing his wife over the balcony.

    Just when you think that the Spanish justice system cannot get any worse…it does!! It beggars belief.

    Frank if only the law could be a yes or no. The lawyers make a living from the greay areas.

    I, stand by “Yes, if she is Irish & has drank all your Irish whisky.

    Frank, you should learn from your mistakes first time round!! ๐Ÿ˜† Maybe it’s not the mother-in-law that’s the problem! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Claire ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yep she is the problem as she has the house in our name ๐Ÿ˜€
    She came to see us last weekend and passed out through lack of air intake while rabbiting.
    Now if you have a court case then send her in as they would make judgement in yer favour to shut her up.
    Trust me there would be no appeal ๐Ÿ˜†
    Alway have said when people ask if she could be quiet that the only thing that would shut her up is a gun.
