Almost two weeks after the murder of a Ukrainian (28) in a refugee accommodation in town, background of the crime has leaked. Contradicting the announcement of the Prosecution Landshut shortly after the crime, the 47-year-old [suspect] shows considerable psychiatric abnormality. A relevant examination on the weekend allegedly showed this.
Subsequently, the committing magistrate changed the arrest warrant to a warrant of commitment. The man has now been moved from prison to the district psychiatric hospital, confirms chief prosecutor Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, spokesman of the Prosecution Landshut, in answer to our enquiry yesterday.
Inside sources in the police told PNP that the bloody crime might have been more than just an escalated argument between roommates. According to these sources, the Kazakh said in interrogations that he was raped by his later victim, so allegedly it was a brutal revenge. According to PNP’s investigations, the Kazakh attacked his victim in their shared room with a knife and, among other things, cut off his penis. The 28-year-old bled to death at the crime scene.
