(3/22/2014)

The State News Agency Antara reports that the two men held in the death of an American expatriate in Bali may be charged on Section 340 of the Indonesian Criminal Code (KUHP) with premeditated murder.

The head of the criminal division for the Denpasar Police Precinct, Commissioner Dewa Tagel Wijasa said, “The two suspects, MA (20) and MS (31) had the intention to kill beforehand.

While Wijasa only identified the suspects by initials, earlier reports by Antara identified the two men as Multawan Aulawi or Awi (MA) from East Lombok and Marsianus alias Marsi (MS).

Police ran a reconstruction of the crime at the scene of the crime on Friday, March 20, 2014, recording on film 68 separate scenes depicting the murder of the American.

According to police, prior to the reconstruction the two men purchased the knife they used in the murder at the Kereneng market in Denpasar at 5:00 pm on February 15, 2014, just hours before the crimal attack.

“Both men admitted they knew the victim well and before the murder one of them claimed he was sodomized by the victime, precipitating the desire to kill,” said Wijasa.

In the reconstruction supervised by the police, Marsi invited Awi to Latourell’s home at 1:00 am on February 16, 2014.

The prime suspect allegedly knocked on Latourell’s door before being invited in for drinks and a discussion with the victim. An invitation to sex followed, leading to the murder in the early hours of February 16, 2014.

AW told police he refused Latourell’s sexual approach, after which the American allegedly struck the man’s face.

The man told police he then drew his knife and repeatedly stabbed the victim. While Latourell tried to resist the attack, he was stabbed a total of 117 times.

Police say the men wrapped Latourell’s body in three towels.

Following the murder, the men stole a Toyota Kijang owned by Latourell that the later sold for Rp. 110 million (US$9,600) on the island of Lombok.

The proceeds of the sale of the stolen vehicle were used to purchase a motorcycle, big screen television, video player and unpaid university fees.
