Baden-Württemberg: Woman should be behind bars for life for murdering her mother

Tübingen (dpa / lsw) - The public prosecutor's office has applied for a life sentence for the daughter in the case of an accused matricide. In her closing argument on Monday before the regional court in Tübingen, senior public prosecutor Rotraud Hölscher also assumed that the guilt was particularly serious. If the court determines the particular severity of the guilt, the convicted person can only be released after 15 years in exceptional cases. Defense attorney Christian Schmidtberg requested that his client be acquitted of the murder charge.

The accused is said to have tried to suffocate her sleeping mother with a pillow in October last year. When she woke up and fought back, the daughter is said to have fatally injured her with an iron bar. According to the public prosecutor's office, the reason for this was that she had withdrawn money from her mother's account for months due to "tight financial circumstances". Overall, the damage caused by fraud and forgery of documents amounts to more than 17,000 euros.

The mother should have figured that out. The 48-year-old daughter is said to have feared for her inheritance and criminal consequences. She was also afraid that her mother would throw her out of the house where the accused lived.
