'Constant tensions' before murder of violent dad - court

Alex Poma cleared of killing abusive father in April 2020

- ROME, NOV 25 - The context in which a 20-year-old Italian man stabbed his father to death on April 30, 2020, in Collegno (Turin), was one of physical abuse and constant tension, the Court of Assizes in Turin has said.
    The court on Thursday acquitted Alex Pompa, saying he stabbed his father to death to protect his mother during yet another family fight.
    The family was rocked by "abuse, nearly constant tensions, pathological behaviors, the constant fear for the safety of his mother and his own", the court of assizes wrote on October 22 - without anticipating Thursday's verdict - when it revoked Pompa's house arrest.
