A 53 year old man is facing 8 years in prison after being charged with trying to kill his ex-wife’s lawyer with a chainsaw.
The incident happened in an agricultural warehouse in El Ejido on March 10, 2014. The estranged husband ran into the lawyer during a fruit auction being held there and got into an argument.
The discussion ended with the man grabbing a chain-saw, firing it up and threatening to kill the lawyer, who fled for his life with the aggressor giving chase. Members of the public restrained the man until the police arrived.
