The convicted murderer of eleven-year-old Lena from Emden has to answer to the court again today. The public prosecutor's office accuses the 29-year-old of having raped a woman and sexually assaulted another woman in the correctional facility.
In June 2020, he is said to have raped a fellow patient on the grounds of a psychiatric facility in the Ammerland district. Two months earlier he is said to have sexually assaulted a woman there.
According to the Oldenburg district court, the 29-year-old is now in another psychiatric hospital.
Lena's death in a parking garage in Emden moved people nationwide in 2012. The regional court in Aurich found the then 19-year-old perpetrator guilty of murder, attempted sexual abuse and dangerous bodily harm. It considered the young man to be of limited criminal responsibility because of a severe personality disorder, and he was placed in a closed psychiatric facility. The presiding judge said when the verdict was announced that the man was a danger to the general public and that he was suffering from a mental abnormality.
