The Chabé Case: The Humbercourt Enigma

Face to Face with Crime – Ep 4

47′ | FR | HD | 2016

Friday June 5, 2015, Beauvais Court of Assizes. In the box, firefighter Ludovic Chabé awaits the verdict. He is appealing against his conviction for the murder of his wife Françoise, found strangled at her home in Humbercourt in the Somme. At his first trial, Ludovic was sentenced to 12 years in prison for this murder. However, he has constantly proclaimed his innocence. His lawyer talks about a miscarriage of justice, a botched investigation carried out by a biased judge and “confessions” extracted from his client by the gendarmes.
