New request for release for Cédric Jubillar, suspected of having killed his wife. His lawyers again pleaded for his release from pre-trial detention, during a hearing on Tuesday January 11, hypothesizing that Delphine Jubillar could have left the home on her own on the evening of her disappearance. “There are objective elements in the file which allow us to consider that it is more than likely that she changed to go out” of the couple’s house in the Tarn, said Emmanuelle Franck, one of Cédric Jubillar’s lawyers, after her argument before the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal.
The hearing took place in the absence of this 34-year-old painter and plasterer, and behind closed doors, at the request of the general prosecutor’s office, against the advice of defense lawyers. “This hearing was organized behind closed doors, which surprises us and seems contrary to all principles”said Alexandre Martin, another lawyer for Cédric Jubillar. “The elements of the accusation have never been conclusive and this, since the first day”insisted Jean-Baptiste Alary, also counsel for Cédric Jubillar, after a hearing that lasted nearly five hours.
The previous requests for release have been rejected by the courts, for whom there are consistent clues to conclude that the husband was involved in the disappearance of the nurse from Cagnac-les-Mines, near Albi, on December 15. 2020. The public prosecutor has once again requested continued detention. The decision of the investigating chamber was put under deliberation on January 14. According to his lawyers, Cédric Jubillar will be heard again soon concerning the accusations made by one of his cell neighbors in Seysses prison, and relayed in the press. According to this prisoner, the 30-year-old allegedly claimed to have killed his wife and buried her body.
