Crime: Couple sentenced to maximum sentence for murder of four-year-old

After the painful death of four-year-old Fabian in Barsinghausen, his mother and her partner were sentenced to life in prison for murder. The Hanover Regional Court also determined the particular severity of the guilt. This would make it highly unlikely that the 29-year-old Polish woman and the 34-year-old German-Pole would be released from prison after just 15 years.

For months, the child was beaten with, among other things, a meat tenderizer and a belt and was repeatedly locked in a storage room overnight without any clothes. Fabian and his sister, who was two years older, were also tortured with deprivation of food and drink and were not allowed to go to the toilet. They had to kneel on the hard ground for hours with their arms raised, as the presiding judge described in her verdict.

Fabian died on January 12th or 13th after the 34-year-old inflicted numerous injuries on him with the meat tenderizer. According to witnesses, the completely emaciated boy was already so weak that he had to be carried. The verdict is not yet legally binding.
