Footage Released Of Homeless Man Burned Alive After Killer Became 'Jealous'

A homeless man was burned alive after the killer became convinced that the man was having an affair with his recently estranged wife.

The victim, named as 45-year-old Marcello Cimini, was sleeping outside the Mission San Francesco in Palermo, southern Italy when his killer attacked.

The CCTV footage shows a man, wearing all black, approaching Cimini with a container full of liquid.

He then throws the liquid over him and sets it alight.
