Cologne (dpa) – A 35-year-old man is standing in front of the Cologne district court from today for the murder of his lover. The public prosecutor’s office accuses the defendant of having killed the woman with two shots in the head in December 2020. The charge is treacherous murder.
Accordingly, the Turk is said to have shot the 31-year-old in Cologne through the open passenger door of her car when she did not expect an attack. One day later, the defendant is said to have taken the victim’s body to Ochtendung in Rhineland-Palatinate in the car and burned it in a forest there. The police surely surprised the woman’s car later in Cologne. What motive the man might have had for the crime has not yet been conclusively clarified.
14 negotiation days are planned for the process until mid-November.
