Assizes of Indre-et-Loire: the ex-firefighter accused of having suffocated an old woman with a madeleine acquitted

A resident in an Alzheimer unit in a Tours nursing home was found dead three years ago.

While the prosecution had requested twenty years of criminal imprisonment against a former firefighter accused of having suffocated a nonagenarian with a madeleine, the latter was acquitted Friday evening in Tours by the Assizes of Indre-et-Loire . Yvette B., 92, resident in an Alzheimer unit in a Tours nursing home, was found dead on May 13, 2019, in her bed, pieces of cake in her mouth.

The accused had just visited him, bringing a package of industrial madeleines. The motorcycle enthusiast had locked the bedroom door, a behavior that had raised questions among the nursing staff. The former Paris firefighter had taken out a life annuity in 1995 on a family home of the victim.
