The Justice of Rio de Janeiro determined the release of Bruno Krupp after the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) granted habeas corpus to the model, who has been imprisoned since August last year.
In July, Krupp ran over and killed 16-year-old João Gabriel when he was driving at over 100 km/h on Avenida Lúcio Costa, in Barra da Tijuca, in the capital of Rio de Janeiro.
“In compliance with the decision of the Superior Court of Justice, the judgment of the 4th Criminal Court issued a release order in favor of Bruno Fernandes Moreira Krupp”, informed the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro (TJRJ) to CNN, this Wednesday (29).
In the decision, the judge highlighted the determination of the STJ that “granted the order to replace preventive detention with alternative precautions”.
The model must wear an electronic anklet, appear in court at the beginning of every month, is prohibited from leaving the country without judicial authorization and must deliver his passport. Finally, Bruno Krupp had his right to drive suspended and is prohibited, by court decision, from obtaining a driver’s license.
remember the case
Model Bruno Fernandes Krupp, 25, was arrested in August last year for causing the accident that killed a 16-year-old teenager in Rio de Janeiro on the 30th of July of that year.
João Gabriel Cardin Guimarães was rescued alive by the Fire Department, which amputated the victim’s left thigh while still at the scene. He was sent to the Lourenço Jorge municipal hospital, in Barra da Tijuca, but he could not resist and died on Sunday (31).
Krupp suffered abrasions and was also taken to the health complex.
According to information from the Military Police, the accident happened on Avenida Lúcio Costa, in Barra, at around 10:50 pm.
The teenager was crossing the road when he was hit by the motorcycle driven by Bruno.
Traffic monitoring cameras caught the model driving a motorcycle at high speed. In an instruction hearing in November last year, Krupp admitted that he was driving at more than 100 km/h.
According to the State Secretariat of Civil Police, the case was initially registered at the Barra da Tijuca police station as a case of bodily injury while driving a motor vehicle, but, with the victim’s death, the case began to be investigated as manslaughter.
The Civil Police had already informed that Bruno Krupp did not have a license to drive the vehicle.
Justice also adds that he would have been caught by a traffic stop three days before the incident.
