Kandel — A 15-year-old girl was stabbed down on Wednesday afternoon in a drugstore in Rhineland-Palatinate by an Afghan boy of the same age. He was the girl’s ex-boyfriend. This is what the leading chief prosecutor Angelika Möhlig said on a press conference. An arrest warrant was issued.
The boy is in preliminary detention under strong suspicion of manslaughter. He has been refusing to make a statement so far. According to the information, the girl broke up with the accused at the beginning of December. On Wednesday they encountered each other accidentally. The Afghan followed his ex-girlfriend and stabbed her repeatedly in the drugstore.
After the relationship of several months had ended, the youth announced on social media that he wanted to “catch” his ex girlfriend, said Police Deputy Chief Eberhard Weber.
The Afghan entered Hesse in April 2016 as an unaccompanied underage refugee. He had been living in Neustadt an der Weinstraße (Rhineland-Palatinate) in a group accommodation with three other youths since September 2017. He already had a record with the police for an altercation at the school yard.
Perpetrator Stabbed Her With a Kitchen Knife
The parents of the victim pressed charges against the perpetrator for harassment two weeks ago. After the charge, the youth ignored the police citation several times. As a result, police delivered the citation personally to him before noon on the day of the crime.
The murder weapon is a 20-cm-long kitchen knife. The weapon was secured, according to Dieter Lippold, the leader of the 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. The two companions of the girl helped detain the stabber until the arrival of the police.
The store is open again on the day after the deed, but shock and mourning run deep.
People have put flowers in front of the door, and lit candles. The customer Diana Jäger (31) was in the drugstore to fetch her photos on the evening of the deed. She heard an argument, then the girl’s screams: “I did not hear what it was about.” Then, the girl was lying on the floor, teenagers standing beside her. Diana Jäger: “They said, ‘Mia, stay awake!’”
Everything happened very fast. Jäger also saw the alleged perpetrator, she says: “He had a dirty smile on his face.”
The girl’s uncle, Jürgen Stöffler (55), says to 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.’”
The dm store manager, Roman Melcher (50), said to BILD: “I wish to express our deepest sympathy to the family. We are deeply saddened.”
