The American man accused of killing his glam Colombian DJ girlfriend and stuffing her body into a suitcase was admonished by a judge for laughing in court.

John Poulos, the main suspect in the death of Bogota DJ Valentina Trespalacios, 21, was in front of a judge on Wednesday (February 1) when he received a warning for sniggering.

He is alleged to have killed the young woman and stuffed her into a suitcase, before the case was found inside a bin by a homeless man in the Colombian capital.

He was caught laughing during the intervention of the representative of the Attorney General's Office, reports in Colombia stated.

"Excuse me, Madam delegate of the Public Ministry, we are going to make a call for attention. Mr. Translator, so that you please tell Mr. John Nelson to be attentive to the interpretation.

"I do not see that the intervention of the delegate of the Public Ministry is cause of ridicule or cause of some laughter", declared the judge.

The prosecutor also revealed that Poulos showed an Uber driver a picture of his girlfriend as he headed for the airport to flee Colombia after allegedly killing her.
