A Senegalese man was on Thursday sentenced to 30 years in prison for the murder of Ashley Olsen, an American found naked and strangled in her flat in Florence, Italy in January.I'm sure it's very edgy and daring and empowered to get yourself killed over a one-night stand. Strong independent women for the win!
Tidiane Cheik Diaw, 27, an illegal immigrant who had met Olsen in a nightclub hours before her death, was convicted of homicide. The judge rejected the prosecution's request for the charge to be considered as having been aggravated by acts of cruelty.
The prosecution matched his DNA to traces recovered from the dead women and from a condom and a cigarette butt found in the flat. A post-mortem concluded that Olsen, 35, died as a result of strangling but she also suffered a double fracture of the skull. The prosecution's case was that the couple had fought after having consensual sex.
I'm sure her family will be grateful that no one will ever be able to call her racist.
