Killer freed

A Frenchman jailed for killing the alleged murderer of his four-year old son was freed on Wednesday after a court gave him a relatively lenient sentence, Reuter reports from Paris. Jean-Marie Villemin was sentenced earlier this month to five years in jail, including 12 months suspended, for the 1985 killing of his cousin, Bernard Laroche, with a shotgun. He has already spent three years in jail. Villemin admitted shooting Laroche in the belief that he murdered his son, Gregory, in October 1984.
