Face to Face with Crime – Ep 10

50′ | FR | HD | 2016

On June 29, 2015, a thirty-year-old former bus driver, Yunis Merizak, appears before the Colmar Assize Court. He is accused of having killed Christine Mathieu, 20, who was found suffocated in February 2009 in a wood near Luxeuil-les-Bains in Haute-Saône. She was a night receptionist in a hotel… But can the guilt of this seducer, who claims to have only had a short-lived relationship with the victim, be proved beyond any doubt? The defence has a strong case for his acquittal…
