Scurko was in court today in Kosice to face his murder charge. He has admitted to killing Poprad referee Marek Liptaj. The two had known each other for a couple years. Things began to sour when Liptaj moved into Scurko's rented flat in Kosice. Scurko said he allowed Liptaj to stay with him when Liptaj told him he had terminal cancer. When Scurko found out this was a lie, Scurko was obviously upset and became focused on getting Liptaj to move out. At this point Liptaj began to threaten Scurko, saying he had friends in the mafia who would harm Scurko and blow up his car. Liptaj also threatened suicide and said he would break up Scurko's relationship with his girlfriend.

On the fateful day in January, Scurko had packed Liptaj's things and was to drive Liptaj back home to Poprad. In the car the two began to argue almost right away, with Liptaj even threatening to jump out of the car. Scurko pulled out a kitchen knife which he said he had with him for self-defence. Scurko said he first nicked Liptaj's neck as a warning that he was serious and that the two should stop arguing. Moments later he stabbed Liptaj in the stomach with the knife, and doesn't remember what happened afterwards.

There are some problems with Scurko's story [i.e. returning to bury the body several days later, Liptaj was stabbed 19 times, etc], and even if it was all true it doesn't justify murder. Scurko faces 7-10 years or 15-20 years depending on the severity of his crime.

Strange turn of events today as Scurko changed his plea to not guilty. His story completely changed. He now says he and Liptaj were driving when Scurko stopped the car at the side of the road in front of another vehicle. Scurko remained in the car while Liptaj got out. Ten minutes passed when Scurko noticed Liptaj's body being carried by two men he didn't recognize. He said the two men put the body into his trunk, one got into the passenger's seat and told him to start driving, while the other followed in their own car. Once they got to Velka Lomnica, the two men transferred the body into their own car. Scurko said he pleaded with the men not to hurt him because it would be a waste of a hockey player.

That´s a pretty lame story. Did he watch too much CSI or something?

The trial will continue on October 6th 2010 in Kosice. The police have several witnesses as well as psychological reports, etc. Technically speaking as he now pleads his innocence, the word "allegedly" should be placed in the title of the thread

Was he convicted? Seems like a crazy thing to do for someone to just switch like that.

Scurko was released from prison in November. Probably the best explanation that can be provided is that he was released due to corruption in the Slovak justice system. He served a total of 2.5 years in prison.

8 years for murder is a joke. He already served 2,5 years, and can be freed in 1,5 year because in Slovakia you can be pardoned after serving 1/2 of your sentence.

František Koleno (20), former youth hockey player of HC Martin, got involved into bar fight in December 2011. During his drunk temper tantrum he managed to kick policewoman. Unfortunately for the poor policewoman, she suffered serious knee injury, and the young Koleno (ironically knee in slovakian is Koleno) got 11 years and 7 months.

Are you kidding me? Wow, Slovakia's justice system is worse than Canada's! 2.5 years for murder and 11 years 7 months for kicking a policewoman and hurting her knee? That ref lost his life and 2.5 years of justice were paid, while a sore knee ruins that kids life?

Just sickening...

Your math is wrong, Scurko got 8, out of which 2,5 was served, so he has a good chance to be released after serving 1/2 of his sentence, which is 4 years in his case. Same goes for young Koleno btw. Point remains however, our justice system is a joke because its basicaly saying that cop's knee is worth more than refs life.
