Homeless man found dead in car in December

>>>ANSA/ Boy, 13, admits torching tramp in 'prank'

(By Denis Greenan). Verona, January 12 - The younger of two boys who allegedly set fire to a homeless man near Verona on December 13 has admitted killing the man for kicks, Italian police said on Friday. The 13-year-old boy said he and his 17-year-old companion made "partial admissions" about the terrible "prank" they played on a 64-year-old Moroccan found burned to a cinder in his car at Santa Maria di Zevio near Verona, police said after the incident gained major headlines. Given his age, the younger boy is not liable to arrest or detention, judicial sources said. The fire on the old Fiat Bravo containing Ahamed Fdil was set using a number of rolls of kitchen paper, perhaps taken from a nearby pizzeria, police said. It is not clear whether they were thrown into the vehicle or under it, police said. Police said they were awaiting the results of an autopsy on the victim. This will not be carried out before next week, judicial sources said. The second boy is also liable to arrest because he is under 18 and thus a minor. Both alleged perpetrators will therefore be handled by a juvenile court, judicial sources said. Local residents said the pair frequently pestered the homeless man, throwing firecrackers at him. "It was a joke, we didn't do it on purpose," Il Corriere del Veneto quoted the minors as saying. The case is not the first in which homeless people have been killed for kicks in Italy. On several other occasions, however, homeless people have been found burned to death after accidentally setting themselves on fire. Pope Francis has on several occasions spoke out about the plight of the homeless.
