Neubrandenburg (dpa/mv) - In the trial for the joint murder of a man from Afghanistan, the two defendants are silent on the allegations. At the district court in Neubrandenburg, the proceedings began on Tuesday with the reading of the indictment. The 19-year-old Iranian and the 17-year-old Afghan then said they did not want to comment. According to the public prosecutor's office, the accused killed the 30-year-old in Neubrandenburg on February 7 this year "because of a violation of honor for base motives". According to the indictment, a witness had pulled the men off the victim.
According to the public prosecutor, the reason for the violent attack was that the 30-year-old insulted a friend of the 19-year-old as a "slut". The men are said to have hit the victim on a walk along the Oberbach with a log, among other things, and then kicked and hit the victim who was lying on the ground. Passers-by called for help.
The suspects fled but were caught. The victim had severe head injuries and died in a clinic on February 18, despite prompt medical help.
