Eighteen years in prison, six years of socio-judicial follow-up and ten years ban on appearing in Loudéac. On Friday, the Assize Court of Côtes-d'Armor sentenced a man to eighteen years in prison for the murder of a man perpetrated on March 28, 2020 in Loudéac. The victim had been stabbed 55 times at his home in this small town in central Brittany. According to Ouest-France, the respondent regularly came to his victim's home to obtain heroin. On the day of the murder, he allegedly went into a mad rage after being the victim of insults aimed at him and his family while he was at the home of the victim, aged 36.

According to the daily, the accused was unable to explain his gesture to the Assize Court, explaining that he only remembers having carried out "six or seven" stab wounds. The 44-year-old had been a drug addict for several years. He had already been convicted of violence against his ex-girlfriend and had been incarcerated for a few months in 2014.
