An Italian nurse allegedly strangled his doctor girlfriend to death because “she gave him Coronavirus.”
After committing the crime, 28-year-old Antonio De Pace reportedly called cops to tell them he had murdered young medic, Lorena Quaranta, 27.
When Police arrived at the scene, they found her dead in their apartment in Italy, while De Pace was found on the floor having cut his wrists but his colleagues were able to save his life at their hosiptal.
The young couple had been working in a local hospital in Messina, Sicily after they were drafted to help during the coronavirus crisis.
De Pace allegedly confessed: “I killed her because she gave me coronavirus.”
A police source said: “She was a doctor who was working hard to save others. It’s such a tragedy.”
The Sun reports that tests were being carried out on both, but it came back negative, meaning neither Lorena or De Pace had the virus.
Lorena had been very vocal on social media about the coronavirus outbreak
