The relatives of Kevin Ribal, stabbed to death one night in October 2018, at the age of 23, at the exit of a Cannes discotheque, will have to plunge back into a trial. Two of the three accused, sentenced to prison on February 10, have decided to appeal, reveals BFM Nice Côte d'Azur.

They are the man who had struck the victim when she had just been fatally wounded with a knife and another convicted of "embezzlement or destruction of a document or object relating to a crime or offence to obstruct the establishment of the truth" for concealing the murder weapon. The Alpes-Maritimes Assize Court sentenced them to fifteen and three years in prison respectively.

The 30-year-old man who was convicted of the two fatal stab wounds, and who received thirty years in prison, did not comment, also said the local channel. At least for now. The appeal may be made within ten calendar days following the delivery of the judgment of the Assize Court.
