The head of the Denpasar, Bali police precinct, Police Commissioner Djoko Hariutomo told Metrobali.com and the State News Agency Antara on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, that the parties responsible for murdering the American expat Paul Latourell (52) now face the threat of life imprisonment or death before a firing squad.

According to Hariutomo, the two men under arrest in the murder - Multazan Aulawi alias Awi (19) from East Lombok and Marsianus alias Marsi (30) from Flores, may face multiple criminal charges for premeditated murder and homicide committed in the course of committing a robbery.

Police say the main perpetrator in the murder was the younger man Awi, assisted in the crime by the older Marsi.

Awi was arrested at his boarding house on Jalan Nusa Indah in Denpasar on Friday, February 21, 2014, at 11:00 pm. Meanwhile, Marsi was apprehended by police on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, at 1:30 pm near the Kapten Japa field at Tohpati, Denpasar.

Police said they are sill trying to determine the exact motive in the savage murder that saw the victim stabbed at least 135 times. Police theorize jealousy may have played a role in the crimes.

“We are studying the motives, because Awi has admitted he was jealous. We are now trying to determine the nature of that jealousy,” said Hariutomo.

Police also suspect that robbery played a role in motivating the crime as a Kijang Car taken from Latourell’s home was sold for Rp. 110 million (US$9.200) in West Lombok the day after the murder.

The police are also studying what role premeditation played in the robbery-homicide based on the fact that Awi reportedly brought the knife used to murder the American with him to the scene of the crime.

When presented to the press, Awi told reporters he only brought the knife to Latourell’s home for self-defense purposes.

Awi, who claims to be a student of management at a private university in Denpasar, told reporters that he killed Latourell in anger after the American allegedly struck him when the Awi refused a request to perform an act of sodomy.

Awi admitted to having had intimate relation with the victim and calmly told the press that, “I became annoyed and took the knife I had brought with me.”

Awi also said the night of the murder was the first time he had met Latourell, introduced that night by Marsi who invited him to the American’s home on Jalan Banteng.

He related to the police that the victim had fought him during the struggle in which he stabbed Latourell 135 times with the knife, inflicting wounds of 1-1.5 centimeters in depth.

After taking Latourell’s life the slightly built young man escaped to Lombok for one day to sell the car before returning to Denpasar.
