Late last year we reported on the rape and murder of a native German girl named Maria L. in the town of Freiburg. A culture-enricher named Hussein K. was eventually named as the perpetrator and arrested.
Official reports only identify victim and perpetrator by their first names and initials. However, their full names eventually escaped into the press (especially on the Internet): Maria Ladenburger and Hussein Khavari.
See these earlier reports on the crime and the subsequent investigation:

Now Hussein K. is going on trial for the murder. However, since he claimed to be 17 years old when he entered Germany, the state feels that it is impossible to try him as adult. He will be tried under the juvenile code, so the absolute maximum penalty he can receive for his crime is fifteen years in prison. And all this after it was revealed that he had remained 17 for at least three years.
Hussein K. Charged with Murder of Freiburg Student
In the case of Maria L., the State Prosecutor presses charges for murder against the alleged perpetrator. Hussein K. will be trialed under the juvenile criminal code. An age assessment classified him as an adult.
Five and a half months after the violent crime against a student in Freiburg, the State Prosecutor is pressing charges for murder against the suspect Hussein K. He is being charged under the juvenile criminal code at the district court Freiburg.
19-year-old Maria L. was raped and murdered in October 2016. Seven weeks later, the suspect was arrested. The refugee stated he was 17 years old. Nevertheless, two age assessments commissioned by the state prosecutor assume that at the time of the crime he was at least 22 years old.
But as doubts cannot be overcome, he will be tried under the juvenile criminal code, the State Prosecutor explains. No date yet has been set for the trial.
Under the adult criminal code, the suspect might face a life sentence. Under the juvenile criminal code, the maximum possible is ten years, in severe cases fifteen years.
He had been convicted in Greece
The crime ignited a debate over German refugee policy, even before the attack on the Christmas market in Berlin. According to German authorities, Hussein K. came to Germany in November 2015 without any documents.
He stated that he was 17 years old and from Afghanistan. Therefore he was under the protection of the Youth Welfare Office as an unaccompanied minor refugee, and lived with a foster family in Freiburg. He could not provide any verification of age and background.
He had been sentenced to ten years in prison for a violent crime against a young women in Greece in 2013. But he was released early in October 2015 under constraints. Shortly thereafter, he disappeared and came to Germany as a refugee.
German authorities weren’t aware of the criminal background of the man, because Greece did not issue an international arrest warrant.
Hussein K. was arrested in Freiburg early December, and has been under arrest since. Police found his DNA traces at the crime scene. According to reports, he remains silent on the allegations.
