The investigators quickly found out what happened: it is believed that the victim got into a fight with a 40-year-old man from Dövény and a 29-year-old man from Putnok, in a bar on the 4th of February.
It seemed like the fight got sorted out, because the three man, the partner of the victim and the 35-year-old partner of one of the suspects sat in a car and left to a close-by settlement.
But along the way, the two men knifed the victim several times and threatened his partner not to talk about the ‘incident”.
Then, the suspects hid the corpse.
The two men and one’s partner were arrested on the 5th of February. Two days later, a 39-year-old woman from Putnok was also arrested because she is believed to have helped to clean up the evidence. The three suspects are accused of manslaughter, while the woman is accused of abatement.
