MADRID — Three bouncers who worked at a Barcelona club have been jailed for ten years for the murder of a young man.
James Anglada, Mariano Romero and Antonio Fernando Quinoces were convicted of beating Ecuadorian Wilson Pacheco, who then drowned when he was thrown into the sea.
The murder happened near the Maremagnum club complex in Barcelona in 2002.
The Spanish supreme court confirmed the sentence of the provincial court in Barcelona which originally found the men guilty following a trial last year.
The men also have to pay compensation of EUR 96,789 to the widow of Pacheco, Yvonne Guznahay, plus EUR 40,328 to each of his three children and EUR 8,000 to his mother.
The murder took place in January 2002, when the three bouncers stopped Pacheco from entering the disco Caipirinha because he and some friends had drunk too much.
One of the Ecuadorians threw an object at one of the bouncers. A fight started between the bouncers and the Ecuadorians.
Quincoces and Romero beat Pacheco and Anglada threw him into the sea where he drowned.
