Scum of the Day

AP reports:

A Spaniard on trial in the 1996 rape and strangling death of a British schoolgirl on a school trip to France admitted on Tuesday he raped the 13-year-old but denied he was capable of killing her.

“I’m not a killer,” Francisco Arce Montes told the court on the second day of his weeklong trial. If convicted, the 54-year-old suspect risks life in prison for the July 18, 1996, murder.

Arce Montes admitted wanting to have sex with her when he wandered into a Brittany youth hostel and laid down beside the sleeping Caroline Dickinson. She was asleep on the floor of the packed dormitory.

Arce Montes, of the Spanish town of Gijon, has a record of sexual aggression. He said he had been drinking and on medication and was sexually aroused the night of the murder.

Asked whether he had raped the young girl, he said yes.

“I just want to add that I’m not a killer. I had absolutely no intention of killing Caroline,” he said. “I’m incapable of killing someone. I just wanted to (have sex) with her.”

I find it hard to believe that someone capable of raping a 13-year-old girl is not capable of killing her.
