Andrea Cipolletta was against his 19-year-old daughter’s plan to tie the knot with Vincenzo De Stasio, although insists he did not intend "to turn into an assassin", Il Messaggero reported.
The 46-year-old bus driver shot De Stasio during a heated row. In an attempt to save him, he loaded his body into a car and rushed to hospital. But after realising De Stasio had died, Cipolletta abandoned the Fiat Panda opposite a betting shop.
He later confessed to police.
