Abner Aquilina used car keys to sexually violate Paulina Dembska, court reveals

New details about murder suspect’s Abner Aquilina’s reported rape and murder of Paulina Dembska in January 2021 were revealed in court today.

Aquilina was reportedly laughing and boasting about his treatment of Dembska, explaining that he used his car key to sexually violate the woman, also telling prisoners that he negotiated a 20-year sentence as part of a plea bargain. The inspector since denied the aforementioned statement.

Aquilina was also heard threatening to murder his mother and lawyer on the phone, stating that he would kill again if he was let out.

The suspect’s mother sat behind him as he laughed and bragged during intense moments in court, particularly when graphic details of Dembska’s rape and murder were recounted.

Times of Malta reported that even during a search of his cell conducted by a female police officer, Aquilina revealed his genitals, stating “What are you looking for? Why not seize my penis as evidence, because that’s what was inside her.”

What do you make of this?
