He killed his wife after she told him she wanted to separate from him. For this, Moez S. (43) was sentenced to eight years in prison for manslaughter on Thursday.
The Bonn Regional Court considered it proven that the man, who lives in Euskirchen, first strangled the mother (26) of their common son (3) for over 30 seconds during an argument last September. In the ensuing scuffle, the woman fell onto the edge of a bed and suffered a bleeding head wound.
Afterwards, the trained cook hit his wife’s head so hard against the laminate floor that she suffered most serious injuries and died two days later in a hospital.
At the beginning of the trial, the Tunisian had said via his lawyer Michael Hakner: “I was then no longer able to control myself and regret what I had done”.
Already in 2018, the 43-year-old allegedly beat his wife during an argument. At the time, she reported to the police, but later forgave him for the beatings.
