28-12-2011

Police say they have concluded an investigation into the murder of the popular novelist Simona Monyová and submitted the case to the regional state prosecutor in South Moravia. Ms Monyová was stabbed to death in August in her home in Brno, reportedly after a domestic dispute. Police immediately charged the author’s husband, 45-year-old Boris Ingr, with murder. Mr Ingr has been in custody since August but the motive of the murder remains unclear. Ms Monyová’s friends indicated after her death that she had been a victim of domestic violence.
