Son murdered "looking in the eye" – "lifelong" for father

The court considers it proven that a 51-year-old killed his boy. However, the question of “why” remains.

Bamberg – A 51-year-old man in Upper Franconia was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his own nine-year-old son.

The fact was very difficult to understand even after seven days of the trial, especially for the mother and sister of the killed boy, it was incomprehensible, said the judge at the Bamberg regional court when the verdict was pronounced on Friday.

The court saw it as proven that the 51-year-old hit the nine-year-old in March with a metal hanger on the head and then choked him for minutes with his bare hands. “That means: looking the son in the eye,” said the judge. The man had made a full confession to the police and in court.

The question of “why?” Could therefore not be clearly clarified for the court either. Several aspects were mentioned: the wife had separated from the man months earlier, the family had debts, he was worried about his job. In addition, the man suffered from depression, according to his own statements, he also wanted to kill himself, but did not manage to do so after the crime on his son. A reviewer noted a slight depression. The verdict is not yet legally binding. dpa
