Rome bank manager gets 30 yrs

Accounts also frozen

(ANSA) - Rome, October 8 - A 55-year-old Roman bank manager on Monday got 30 years in jail for killing his 47-year-old partner, a teacher at Rome's historic German school, by bashing her head in with a gym weight in their home near Rome's iconic Spanish Steps on May 1, 2017.
    A judge also ordered the man's bank accounts and severance pay to be frozen in view of probable damages to the victim's relatives.
    The femicide took place in Vicolo del Babbuino, between Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo.
    The man, Francesco Carrieri, was said to have been angry that Michela Di Pompeo had told him she was going to leave him.
    Their relationship had lasted about a year and a half.
    Di Pompeo's colleagues at Rome's prestigious Deutsche Schule Rom voiced "great consternation and uncontainable sadness" at losing a "beloved" friend and colleague.
