Skydiver murder trial finds Belgian woman guilty

A Belgian woman has been found guilty of murdering her love rival by sabotaging her parachute on a sky dive four years ago.

Els Clottemans, 26, was convicted after a four-week trial that gripped Belgium.

A jury heard how she cut through key parts of the parachutes of Els Van Doren, 38, because she was jealous of her relationship with a male skydiver.

Ms Van Doren fell 1,000m (3,200 ft) to her death in November 2006. Clottemans denied the charges and could now face life in prison.
