The 41-year-old NOIR DESIR singer was sentenced to eight years in prison in May (04) for causing the actress's death during a violent argument in a Vilnius, Lithuania hotel room last year (03).
During the trial, the court heard that Cantat hit his lover four times.
Trintignant, daughter of French film star Jean-Louis Trintignant, fell into a coma and died five days later.
Cantat's lawyer says, "French officials are coming next week to accompany Cantat back to France."
Despite rocker Cantat insisting the event was a tragic accident, plans to appeal against his sentence were dropped in June (04).26/09/2004 15:07
