OH. MY. GOD.
this is from a Swedish site (hey, there's an article about former AMS captain Marcus Jonasen on there too--about how he didn't live up to team expectations this season and they didn't renew his contract--I think?--big shock) that I ran through Google Translator:
JVM player recognizes murder.
A bomb of the model major shake just Slovakian hockey, so this just before the World Cup. The former juniorlandslag man and Kosice-forward Ladislav Scurko, 23, has admitted guilty of murder - of a judge.
It has just 23 years filled Ladislav Scurko has created hockey merits - as three years in the Canadian WHL, two JVM tournaments for Slovakia and this year he was ordinary in the classical Slovak club Kosice, where he listed five objectives assistlogin seven of 52 matches and ended the season as Slovakian champions.
Now, however, learn a career to be over for the Forward. Scurko was arrested yesterday by Slovakian police - suspected of the murder of Judge Mark Liptaje, in December 2007. A deed which Scurko later pleaded guilty to the police during questioning.
The suspect (Scurko), should have cut the victim in the chest with an unknown object several times, said police spokesman Karol Raven.
Scurko will then have dumped the dead body in the woods outside Poprad, where it was not found until a year later. According to police, the attack should not have been premeditated, but have done impulsively.
As regards the motives behind the murder, so the speculation that Liptaje should have been required large sums of money, he could not pay back and Scurko to have belonged to the creditors.
Now ended perhaps the recovery of one of the largest hockey tragedies. Scurko convicted of murder in court, waiting in prison between fifteen years and life.
