Orestes Vonaaged 48, from Petilia Policastro (Crotone) was sentenced by the Court of Crotone, in a monocratic composition (judge Elvizia Cordasco), to one year and six months in prison (suspended sentence) for manslaughter. Carculea was hit and crushed by the tree he had just cut and which, after being stuck between the branches of an adjacent trunk, fell on him. For Vona, who was defended by the lawyer Mario Nigro, the public prosecutor had asked for a 7-year sentence.
