On October 27, 2001, she travelled to Albania again and then returned back to Italy illegally. Hysa and S.K. lived in the city of Genovese in an apartment rented by co-defendant Kujtim Dani, although Dani was not residing at the apartment.

    On April 25th 2002, S.K. was found dead in a garbage bin after being stabbed in the neck.  Prior to her death, S.K. had called both defendants. Both defendants were accused of exploiting the prostitution of S.K., two Romanian nationals (U.M.R. and B.L.M.) and, in the case of Dani, M.L.and T.L.
