New footage obtained by police investigators shows Jeremie Camilleri aiming his BMW X6 at victim Pelin Kaya while driving at high speeds, leading to her death.
The footage comes just hours before Camilleri is set to be charged in court today over the death that rocked the nation and led to a widespread discussion about a rise in drug-fuelled crimes in modern Malta.
Times of Malta reported that the footage proves the “intent to kill” leading to murder charges being levelled against Camilleri.
Camilleri is set to be arraigned in court today at 5.30pm – follow Lovin Malta for updates when the court case begins.
Camilleri has been described as a health fitness enthusiast, with a criminal past involving robbery and bomb scares.
Footage of the moment police officers tased and tackled the suspect behind a fatal car crash this morning has been revealed.
“Take me down easy, you can take me down easy,” Camilleri taunts police officers in the footage.
Moments later, they shoot their taser guns at him, before tackling his prone body to the ground and subduing him. Prior to this, earlier footage shows the man acting erratically just moments after crashing his BMW X6 into a Gżira restaurant, killing an innocent bystander in the process, as police show up to the scene.
The man reportedly became aggressive after he exited the crashed car, even with people who tried to check up on the victim.
As police arrest Camilleri, one bystander can be heard telling the officers that he had been throwing rocks at people nearby.
Camilleri was reportedly high on cocaine when he ran into 30-year-old Turkish citizen Pelin Kaya in Gżira, killing her.
The man was driving a BMW when he drove into a petrol station and the side of a KFC restaurant in Gżira at around 1am this morning.
He is currently in police custody.
