Deadly drama in asylum seeker family: man pushes wife out of window
After a fight dramatic scenes unfolded in Senftenberg: a man pushed his wife out of the window and then murdered her with a knife.
Monday evening towards 21:35 in an apartment in Senftenberg, a 31-year-old man pushed his wife (27) out of the window of their seconnd-floor apartment. The woman fell eight meters to the ground.
She was still alive, but her husband went downstairs and cut her throat with a knife.
The man was apprehended by police shortly thereafter. Apparently the couple from Chechnya had been fighting loudly before the murder. Allegedly the 27-year-old woman was cheating on her husband with other men.
The couple’s five children were present in the apartment when it all happened. However, they were sleeping when the man pushed their mother out of the window.
At first there was talk only of someone having fallen out of the window.
The asylum seeker from Chechnya has been arrested for manslaughter. The children have been taken in by a foster family.
Disclaimer: it was first reported that this incident took place at an asylum seeker home. But it happened in an apartment complex in which the asylum seeker family lived.
