Daval trial: “Have a good stay in prison, Jonathann,” says Alexia’s...

“Hello, Jonathann”. Standing at the bar of the Assize Court of Haute-Saône, burgundy jacket over an elegant black dress, she faces the accused. The one who massacred her daughter, her son-in-law, the one she loved like a son. She looks at him for a long time, probes him, harpoons his gaze. Without hatred. Isabelle Fouillot is one of the keys to this affair. The one that had twice made it possible to break the lock of denial in Jonathann Daval.

As she had done during the confrontation, in December 2018, bringing back the accused on his crazy version of the family plot, then during the reenactment of June 2019, extracting his confession as to the cremation of Alexia’s body, Isabelle Fouillot addressed him directly on Friday morning. An unusual exchange in the Assize Court, authorized by President Matthieu Husson, aware of the role of Alexia’s mother in this decidedly atypical case.

“Hello, Isabelle. »Standing in his box, gray sweater, trucker collar with red lapels, Jonathann does not shy away and supports the gaze of the one he has long called” mother “. “Have you looked at the pictures? She asks him. ” Not all the time. “

“The words too many”

To enlighten the jurors on the reversals and the personality of the accused, but also to maximize the chances of unblocking a frozen situation, the court has indeed just viewed the images of this confrontation. We see Jonathann Daval, at first locked in his lie, suddenly recognizing everything. In tears in the face of the emotion of Isabelle Fouillot, who urges him to free himself and give him a chance to forgive him, he collapses, on his knees in the office of the examining magistrate. “Thank you, thank you,” his mother-in-law says, before picking him up and hugging him.

Images which he now says “hurt”. Whatever, Isabelle Fouillot invites him to “have a dialogue”. Her voice is soft, benevolent, almost enveloping, but the intention is firm: to obtain the real motive for this surge of violence.

“This is the last time I will see you, this is the last time we both speak. I need to know, ”she begins, in the same tone that hit the mark in December 2018.

“Why didn’t you come see us if it was wrong?” We could have done something… ”she regrets.

Newsletter – Most of the news

Every morning, the news seen by Le Parisien

– We couldn’t talk about our problems.

– Why did it come to this?

– It was the argument too many, the words too many.

– Which words ? You are not a man ?

– Yes, the computer scientist blows into his microphone.

– Does it hurt to hear reality in the face? “


“Don’t tell me you killed her for just a few words, I can’t believe it.” One day, you came to tell us: she has met someone, I’m afraid she will leave me. This is the knot, were you afraid she would leave you? »« No », answers, frozen, his son-in-law.

Same old story

Isabelle Fouillot relaunches it, several times. Without disarming. In front of her, fiddling with the microphone, Jonathann Daval has the plaintive gaze of a child caught at fault, with his back round in front of an adult after a big mistake. In order not to be shipwrecked, he clings to the same phrases, already heard many times: “the reproaches”, “the argument”, “I lost my footing”, “the anger has emerged”, “the reproaches”, again …

” So what ? You still want to clear customs. It’s too easy. If all women had to die for this… Did she belong to you, Alexia? Because it was your wife you thought you could do whatever you wanted?

– I loved him, we loved each other. “

The exchange is intense, but Jonathann Daval does not break up. “What was the finality, that she shut up?” Well you won, says Isabelle Fouillot sadly. She’s been silent forever, Alexia. I will no longer hear her laugh, she will never know her niece who is eleven months old, she will never see her nephew again. »« I destroyed everything… », the accused let out in a suppressed sob.

She pauses, recovers her gaze.

“You didn’t care about Alexia?” »She attacks again.

– No, I loved him

– She wanted to go, do we agree?

— NON. »

” I said everything “

Jonathann Daval, clings to the microphone, ensures that there was never any question of divorce, neither before, nor during the night of October 27 to 28, 2017. Which Isabelle Fouillot doubts, recalling the exasperated SMS of her daughter, the days before the drama.

“Didn’t you exist through Alexia?” “

– We loved each other, yes.

– And if she had left, you would have put up with it?

– Me, no, he concedes. The first breach in this wall. The last.

“It was an Isabelle argument, you have to believe me,” insists Jonathann Daval. Isabelle Fouillot leaves a blank, and resumes. ” Do you have something to tell me ? “

– I’m sorry for everything.

– That’s all ? It’s so little… I can wait better, Jonathann, please.

– I said everything. “

Isabelle Fouillot knows that she failed to obtain “the whole truth” that she had come to seek, this “why” which has prevented her from sleeping for three years. It’s finish. But no forgiveness this time. She stares him one last time in the whites of her eyes, and calls him in a cold voice: “Well, too bad, I wish you a good stay in prison, Jonathann.” Farewell. “
