She died on the way to the hospital, but the murderer has been arrested and is going on trial for the brutal murder that took place right in a supermarket in front of her children:
The trial has begun for an Afghan failed asylum seeker accused of killing an Afghan Christian convert woman in front of her children.
The 30-year-old Afghan is said to have known the 38-year-old victim as they had lived in the same asylum home in Germany. The prosecution has alleged that the asylum seeker was upset with the woman’s conversion to Christianity and her offer to help him convert angered him so much that he stabbed her to death, Bayerische Rundfunk reports.
The killing occurred last year in April outside of a supermarket in the German municipality of Prien am Chiemsee in Bavaria. The Afghan man approached the mother of four and then used a knife to cut and stab her 16 times in front of two of her underage children.
An ambulance and police arrived on the scene a short time later but the woman succumbed to her wounds on the way to the hospital.
Since his arrest, the rejected asylum seeker admitted to the murder claiming that he had done so because he was frustrated regarding his failed asylum application.
