In the Baden-Baden trial for the murder of a six-year-old, the accused was sentenced to life imprisonment. The regional court also found that the guilt was particularly serious on Tuesday.
It was considered proven that the 34-year-old killed the girl with a knife on the night of December 19 last year and attacked the corpse. The six-year-old had stayed with his son - she was his playground friend.
With the determination of the particular gravity of the guilt, an early release from prison after 15 years is as good as impossible. The district court sentenced the trained road builder to murder and disturbing the peace of the dead. The German, who had no previous convictions, set a fire after the crime to cover up the crime - although four relatives slept in the house, including his son.
