José Arcadio D.N., better known as 'El Melillero', has once again denied that he was responsible of the acid attack on his ex-girlfriend Sandra and her friend Cristina in Cártama.

He repeated the claim during an appearance before the judge at a Malaga court this Wednesday.

After his arrest in mid-January, he appeared before the court in Fuengirola and from there he was taken to the Alhaurín de la Torre prison.

As happened after his arrest, José Arcadio again exercised his right not to testify and has only answered some questions from his lawyer.
