He was the girl’s ex-boyfriend. This is what leading chief prosecutor Angelika Möhlig explained during a press conference to German media. An arrest warrant had been issued previously.
FWM reported on the murder in Germany by the Afghan who had been in the country since Spring 2016 as an “unaccompanied underage refugee”. Photographs of the migrant belie his age however.
The boy is in preliminary detention under strong suspicion of manslaughter, but has been refusing to give a statement so far. According to information, the girl broke up with the accused in the beginning of December. On Wednesday, they encountered each other in the store by accident. The Afghan stabbed his ex-girlfriend repeatedly in the store.
Police Deputy Chief Eberhard Weber said after the relationship of several months had ended, the youth had announced on social media that he wanted to “catch” his ex girlfriend.
The Afghan arrived in Hesse in April 2016 as an “unaccompanied underage refugee”. He had been living in Neustadt an der Weinstraße in a hostel with three other migrant youths since September 2017, and had already boasted a criminal record.
The parents of the victim had pressed charges against the perpetrator for harassment two weeks ago. After the charge, the youth ignored legal citations on several occasions. As a result, police had delivered the citation personally to him before noon on the day of the crime.
The crime weapon was a 20 centimeter long kitchen knife. The weapon was secured, according to Dieter Lippold, leader of the forensic investigation team. The Afghan did not resist arrest. There were no indications that he was under the influence of drugs.
According to Lippold, he seemed quite indifferent to his horrible deed. The two companions of the girl had helped to detain the stabber until the police’s arrival.
A customer, and an eyewitness, Diana Jäger (31) was in the store when the girl was murdered. She heard an argument, then the girl’s screams. Jäger also saw the alleged perpetrator. “He had a dirty smile on his face.”
The girl’s uncle, Jürgen Stöffler (55), told German tabloid BILD: “The last time I saw her was at our family celebration on Christmas day. We were in a Greek restaurant in Kandel. Now she is dead and I still can’t believe it. My brother-in-law called me yesterday and cried on the phone: ‘Mia was killed.‘”
Some 100 people from Kandel quietly and helplessly gathered in front of the supermarket after the murder.
