Man charged with Houska murder claims he did not know his victim

The man charged with the murder of influential businessman and Social Democratic Party regional politician Roman Houska claims he was unaware of the victim’s identity. The killer, who reportedly fired four shots at Houska at the height of a violent quarrel, turned himself in on Thursday. He told the police he only learnt of the victims’ identity from media reports. The police say there is no question that the man is the culprit since in his testimony he revealed facts that could only have been known to the murderer.
