Migrant ‘stabbed girlfriend 30 times and beheaded her during ritual killing’ in Germany

SHARE
The Congolese migrant had been seeking asylum in Berlin when he is alleged to have carried out the bloody attack.

The man, identified only as Yve M, is accused of using a knife to stab his girlfriend 30 times before beheading her corpse.

He then cut off her left arm and the little finger on her right hand before decorating her body.

Police were called on June 10 last year by a neighbour reporting an unbearable stench coming from the apartment.

When police found the victim, identified by police as Tunay G, her body had already begun decaying.

Bizarrely, the woman’s body had also been decorated with stones, feathers and string – leading investigators to suspect a ritual killing.

The coroner determined the victim, aged 39, had died of blood loss. The murder weapon has not yet been discovered.

The brutal killing took place sometime on May 15 or May 16 last year. The suspect, also aged 39, was arrested on June 11.

The prosecution are calling for the suspect to be committed to a psychiatric ward as they believe he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.

The pair met in 2015 when they were both living in temporary accommodation. They then moved in together in the Berlin neighbourhood of Mariendorf a month before the attack.
