Murder suspect found in wrongly convicted Marcel Tundrea case

Eighteen years after the murder of a 14-year-old girl for which Marcel Tundrea, the suspect at the time, was charged with and sentenced to 25 years in jail, prosecutors found the actual killer. The exhumation of the corpse and more criminology testing conducted as part of a fresh investigation proved that Marcel Tundrea was not the author of the rape and murder for which he was convicted. Tundrea, who had always professed his innocence, was sentenced to 25 year in prison for raping and killing a 14-year-old girl, of which he served 12 years He was released from prison in 2004 and sued the Romanian state for compensations related to his wrong conviction, yet he received no compensations as he died in 2007 from diseases contacted during his imprisonment. The Tundrea case is one of the most serious errors made by the Romanian judicial system after the Revolution of 1989.
