After having accused the murder of his brother-in-law, Bernard Laroche, killed by Jean-Marie Villemin in 1985, Murielle Bolle, then aged 15, had retracted.
In February, the Court of Cassation acknowledged that the custody of the teenager in 1984 had been carried out pursuant to "Unconstitutional". The investigating chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal must now consider the question of its annulment.
