THE sister of a Brit millionaire who was murdered in fit of jealous rage by his model ex-lover wants her executed.
Grieving sister Rachel Bush had her life changed forever when her wealthy jeweller brother Andy Bush – dubbed “Mr Bling of Marbella” – was killed by his ex at his Costa del Sol home.
Now Rachel wishes capital punishment was still legal and that her brother’s killer, Mayka Kukucova, faces execution.
“I’ve lost my brother, who was my best friend,” Rachel said. “She didn’t just destroy her own life and her family’s life, she’s changed our lives forever.”
“It’s a shame it wasn’t in America in a state where if you take a life then your life gets taken, because that’s what would make me feel that’s proper justice. In my eyes, she doesn’t deserve to live.”
Kukucova, then 26, shot self-made businessman Andy, 48, dead during a heated row over his new girlfriend in 2014.
The killer went on the run before being caught in her native Slovakia and extradited to Spain where she was convicted of murder in May 2016.
She’s now serving a 13-year-and-nine-month sentence.
‘ALL SHE WAS INTERESTED IN WAS MONEY’
Rachel said she will never forgive money-obsessed Kukucova, not least because she left her niece Ellie without a dad.
“I could never forgive her. For my own soul and spirit, that’s what you should do, but I don’t know how anybody could forgive that.
“So she can still live her life. Where is Ellie’s dad and her relationship with her dad gone? Ellie always says, ‘I’ll never have my Dad to walk me down the aisle’.”
Rachel said Kukucova was obsessed about her brother’s fortune.
“I could tell their relationship was a bit rocky. I said to him, ‘If you are splitting up, you need to watch your back, because she is not right’,” she recounts.
“And I’ll never forget I said that to him.
“She’s a pretty girl, but to me she’s ugly, couldn’t get no uglier, because she’s got the ugliest personality on this earth. All she was interested in was money.”
MURDERED IN MALAGA
Andy was murdered by his “jealous” model ex-girlfriend six months after their split.
At the time of his killing, he was at his mansion near Malaga when the Slovakian national waited in the bed for him to come home before fatally shooting him three times in April 2014.
After the killing, she escaped to her home country 2,000 miles away but was caught and then jailed for 15 years in May 2016.
She then had her sentence reduced the following year to 13 years’ imprisonment.
Prosecutors said she was upset after the millionaire jeweller ended their two-and-a-half-year relationship in November 2013 and flew into a jealous rage after seeing him with his new woman.
At Kukucova’s trial in 2016, the court heard how the bikini model had become “obsessed” with Andy after their split in November 2013.
Then 26, she had begun stalking him, and from April 2, 2014 – three days prior to his death – had been in his house in Malaga, Spain, without his consent.
And Russian-born Maria Korotaeva, who was seeing the self-made millionaire at the time of his killing, has previously told how she “cowered” in the car as he was shot three times inside the villa.
However Maria has claimed in a tell-all book that a business rival may have ordered her fiance’s killing.
She said Andy had received death threats in the weeks leading up to his murder and a jewellery competitor could have ordered the hit.
Maria said Andy had proposed to her at dinner on the night of his death.
He then drove them home in his £60,000 gold-plated Humvee 4×4, unaware that swimwear model Kukucova was lying in wait armed with a .38 revolver.
She shot Andy three times – twice in the head.
But Russian businesswoman Maria thinks the killing by Kukucova was a hit and now fears her own life could be at risk.
“I’m now worried she may come find me when she gets out. God knows what she is thinking. What is in her head?” she said.
Maria said she nor Andy reported the threats made to him to the police because “they didn’t take them seriously” at the time.
The case featured on a new true crime series called Murder in Paradise last week.
