No intention to kill Kerry Winter: defence

A lawyer argued before Dubai Cassation Court on Monday that nobody witnessed the British manager beating his ex-girlfriend, 36-year-old South African Kerry Winter, or saw her dead, reported 'Gulf News'.

"Not a single witness testified that he/she saw my client [43-year-old MA] beating Kerry and not a single witness saw her dead. In his confession before prosecutors and police, my client did not confess that he had any premeditated intention or will to kill Kerry," advocate Yousuf Hammad argued.

"The factor of premeditation has been ruled out completely from this case. Please drop from your argument the deliberation of the premeditation factor and concentrate on the killing charge," said Presiding Judge Mohammad Nabil Riyadh.

Kerry Winter's body has not been found. She was last seen alive on August 20, 2008.
