THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH: The killer who beheaded the British woman Jennifer Mills-Westley in a Tenerife supermarket has been detained indefinitely in a secret hearing.
Deyan Valentinov Deyanov, 28, was taken before a legal team on the Spanish island at around 1am on Sunday and taken to a psychiatric unit.
Spanish sources said he was unlikely to face another hearing for at least four years.
British expatriate locals who lived near where the homeless Bulgarian slept rough said he had become increasingly aggressive in recent weeks and had split up with his girlfriend recently.
One man, who gave his name as Mike, said Deyanov had been shouting abuse at passers-by until four in the morning and had even flicked lighted cigarettes at female holidaymakers.
"Everyone had started to avoid him," he said. » | Andy Bloxham, Fiona Govan in Los Cristianos, Tenerife andDavid Barrett | Sunday, May 15, 2011
