Brno, August 30 (BD) – The Supreme Court refused the appeal of Radúz Šafránek and confirmed the sentence of 18 years of imprisonment for brutally murdering his ex-girlfriend in arboretum of Mendel University in Brno, Czech TV reported yesterday.

The indirect evidence against Šafránek includes, in particular, camera recordings, odor traces, handkerchiefs on which the girl and the culprit’s blood was found, and a knife case from the crime scene with Šafránek’s DNA.
To the family of the victim a compensation of 2.1 million crowns was issued by the court.
