Trial against the 38-year-old should end today
At the district court in Aschaffenburg, the verdict is expected today against a mentally ill woman who is said to have killed her two-month-old baby. This is currently reported by the news agency "dpa". According to this, accommodation in a psychiatric clinic is to be expected, since the prosecutor considers the 38-year-old to be incapable.
Husband finds son and wife
End of a very sad process: At the district court in Aschaffenburg, the verdict against a 38-year-old who is said to have killed her young son is expected to be pronounced today. As the "dpa" reports, the woman is accused of stabbing her son several times with a kitchen knife in September 2015 when he was sleeping in his cot. The deed therefore occurred in Schneeberg in the Miltenberg district. The husband had found his wife and son at the time. The child had suffered numerous cuts and stab wounds to the neck and chest due to the attack and finally died as a result of the loss of blood. The woman also had life-threatening injuries, which she apparently inflicted on herself after the fact.
Prosecutors assume inability to act
According to the report, the 38-year-old confessed to the crime at the start of the trial. However, the public prosecutor's office considers the woman to be incapable of suffering since she allegedly suffered from a pathological mental disorder at the time of the crime. Accordingly, accommodation in a psychiatric clinic is expected. (No)
