The Antwerp assistance jury has Dimitri Gorris on Thursday evening around 10.15 pm Thursday evening up to 20 years. Earlier in the evening, he was already troubled by the murder of Bart Teichmann on July 16, 2018 in Niel after an argument about a woman. The jury took it seriously that he had not offered help to the victim’s circumstances.
Accused: Dimitri Gorris (35) To blame: murder Victim: Bart Teichmann (38) Venue: Boomsestraat in Niel Date: July 16, 2018
The two men got into the house of Sandra, Dimitri’s ex and the woman who was the victim. After an argument Bart Teichmann would have given Dimitri a blow, then Dimitri Gorris had lashed out with a knife.
“The victim had almost completely bled to death. The fatal stab was very deep, 10 cm, and he deliberately stabbed his neck. After that, the guilt jury question did not drive help and did not call emergency services,” the arrest did not write about the emergency services. Gorris acted premeditated. He had to open the Swiss army knife, so he had time to think about what he was going to do. Just before the facts, he had also sent a message to a friend that he would do something to him. For the fact he already knew Sandra that he would fight for her and destroy a simultaneous one. The jury found the provocation not plausible: the punches were disproportionate to the knife stab.
Attorney General Annelies De Cauwer demanded 26 years in prison and 5 years on the sentencing court. “Dimitri Gorris just slaughtered Bart Teichmann, he didn’t stand a chance. I do see the deviant youth of Dimitri Gorris as mitigating circumstances, I do not see other mitigating circumstances. After the murder he was only concerned with himself and with covering up evidence, he even had a drink in a cafe. In prison he has 61 reports to his name and there are on his criminal record.”
The jury took it seriously that Dimitri Gorris had not offered help to the victim, but also took into account extenuating circumstances, such as his childhood. It was also taken into account that he testified to the victim’s mother. He was described as a hard worker and someone who takes good care of the children of Sandra and the couple he lived with for a while. The delays in handling the case due to the corona pandemic have also been taken into account when determining the sentence.
Before the jury deliberating on guilt, Dimitri Gor had once again said he was sorry. “I really didn’t want it that way. I go to sleep with it and I dream of it. I did my best to explain everything. Thank you to the jury for being here every day, and to the rest of the room as well. I will provide my punishment.”
