Benedicta was reportedly killed after the duo had had sexual intercourse and an argument had broken out, which led to Scalici hitting the Nigerian prostitute with a heavy object on the face and head.

However, it was alleged that Scalici hit Benedicta because he was not satisfied sexually.

Italian police have detained Scalici after he voluntarily confessed to the crime.

Meanwhile, an autopsy has been scheduled.
