An Italian businessman committed suicide in prison overnight, a month after killing two former employees who demanded €20,000 in overdue wages.


Gianluca Ciferri hung himself with bedsheets at the Ascoli Piceno prison, in Italy’s Marche region, Rai News reported.

He was facing double murder charges after shooting Mustafa Nexhmedin, 38, and Avdyli Valdet, 26, on September 15th.

The Kosovan carpenters reportedly went to Ciferri’s home in Fermo to ask for €20,000 they were owed, after failed attempts to claim the wages through their union.

Nexhmedin was shot three times, whereas Valdet was hit twice and was found dying 150 metres away from his coworker. Ciferri denied murder and said he shot the duo in self defence after they threatened him with an axe.
