Two men, who were found guilty of the murder of Dutch volleyball player Ingrid Visser and her partner Lodewijk Severin in Murcia back in May 2013, have been given two 17-year jail terms each at Murcia Provincial Court. Juan Cuenca and Valentin Ion will spend a total of 34 years each behind bars, though the sentence can be appealed at a higher court. They have also been ordered to pay compensation amounting to 200 thousand euros to the families of the two victims.

A third man, Constantin Stan, who was acquitted of murder, has been given a five month prison sentence for concealing a crime, and ordered to pay 16 thousand euros in compensation. Prosecutors are said to be considering an appeal over Stan’s acquittal.
