Escaped inmate identified as lifer (ANSA) - Varese, February 3 - An inmate freed on Monday in an attack on a prison van was identified as Domenico Cutri', 32, serving life for the murder of a Polish man in northern Italy in 2006.

Cutri', from Inveruno near Milan, was convicted on appeal in December 2012 of planning the murder of Luckasz Kobrzeniecki, shot to death outside his house at Trecate near Novara on June 15, 2006.

Cutrì decided to murder Kobrzeniecki because he was bothering his girlfriend.

Cutrì drove the car from which Manuel Martelli, 32, from Trecarte, shot Kobrzeniecki. Martelli got 16 years and four months in an unappealable fast-track trial.

A bar owner in Trecate, Luca Greco, also from Inveruno, got three years for aiding and abetting. In Monday's attack on the prison van, two people were reportedly hit by gunfire..
