A man stabbed his former girlfriend to death after seeing her on a Tinder date with another man. The woman that works as a cruise line named Cristina Ortiz-Lozano, 28, was allegedly killed in an attack after being followed home by an ex-lover named Abdelaziz El Yechioui Ourzat .
Before the incident, he had been filmed on CCTV “hiding in the shadows” outside a pub where Miss Ortiz-Lozano had gone with a man she had met on the popular dating app.
He then allegedly trailed the couple as they returned to her house before following her inside and stabbing her 23 times with a kitchen knife while her date waited outside.
Prosecutor Kerry Maylin told Winchester Crown Court that Ourzat, 30, was a jealous ex-boyfriend in a fit of rage who conducted a frenzied attack on her, quite simply because she had gone out with a male on the night of the killing.”
The jury heard that the couple met at school in Spain and had been together for about 12 years before Miss Ortiz-Lozano dumped Ourzat, who is of Moroccan descent, when he was arrested for drink driving in August 2019.
At the time, they were living together in Southampton, Hants and she was working for the Norwegian Cruise Line. Mr. Ourzat was a baggage handler for Port Skills at the city docks.
Miss Ortiz-Lozano told Ourzat to leave, he went on a rampage around the house, damaging the bedroom and bathroom they shared, ripping light fixtures and radiators out of the walls.
Following the breakup, Miss Ortiz-Lozano met another man, Vincente Breso-Biosca, on Tinder and went on a date with him in September 2019 to Sprinkles ice cream parlor and the Giddy Bridge pub in Southampton.
The CCTV images show that Ourzat watching the couple as they sat outside the pub. Then, he went to Tesco, bought some flowers, and took these to Miss Ortiz-Lozano’s house, before returning to the pub and going inside.
Then, Miss Ortiz-Lozano went inside her house she was followed by Mr. Ourzat.
Mr. Breso-Biosca was unsure what to do so he stood outside the doors but, on hearing shouting and screaming, he went inside.
He saw Miss Ortiz-Lozano already lying on her back on the kitchen floor, with Mr. Ourzat crouching over her with a knife in one hand and his other on her throat. She had her eyes open but he believed her already dead, she was not moving.
Then, Mr. Ourzat turning towards him, shutting the door, and continuing his assault on Cristina Ortiz-Lopez.
The court heard how Miss Ortiz-Lozano suffered stab wounds to her chest, neck, and abdomen and had wounds on her arms, where she raised her arms in front of her body in an attempt to protect her torso and her neck.
The trial still continues.
