A Moroccan-born migrant, who murdered an Italian man in Turin because he was “white” and “happy," has been sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Said Mechaout killed Stefano Leo on February 23rd on the banks of the river Po in Turin.

A month later, Mechaout, a naturalized Italian citizen born in Morocco, confessed to the killing.

Italian prosecutors Ciro Santoriello and Enzo Bucarelli pushed for the maximum sentence of 30 years after it was noted Mechaout showed little to no remorse for the killing.

Stefano Leo's mother was also present at the sentencing and commented :

“We have always been confident."

"And the sentence gives us that reason," she said.

"Justice has run its course,” she said, according to Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera.

Mechaout's lawyer, Basilio Foti, said he expected the sentence to be reduced on appeal because of Mechaout's confession.

The Moroccan migrant confessed to the police that he killed Leo simply because he was white and looked “happy.”

“I hit a white, based on the obvious fact that a young Italian would have caused a sensation,” he allegedly told police.

“I looked at him, and I was sure he was Italian.," Mechaout said.

"I wanted to kill a guy like me, take away all the promises he had, children, remove him from his friends and relatives.”

The case came amid several brutal murders in Italy, which involved migrants as the preparators.

In 2018, Italian teen Pamela Mastropietro was murdered and her body dismembered by a Nigerian drug dealer.

Later, testimony from a man imprisoned with the Nigerian suggested that the teen may have still been alive when she was being dismembered
