PARIS — A repeat offender has confessed to raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl in the eastern French city of Nantes, sparking outrage and calls for tougher release rules.

Firefighters found the teenager’s body 10 days ago in a burning, empty flat under renovation. The 45-year-old suspect strangled her with a cable, then started the fire to cover his tracks, prosecutors said.

The attacker spent 18 years in prison for nine rapes, three attempted rapes, and a sexual assault. He was released in 2016.

“The justice system is corrupted by the far left and its culture of excuses,” deputy head of the far-right National Rally party, Jordan Bardella, told LCI television on Monday.
