Hamm/Iserlohn (dpa/lnw) - In the case of a killed 17-year-old from Iserlohn, the Dortmund public prosecutor has brought charges of manslaughter. Investigators assume that the girl's ex-boyfriend is responsible for the crime and set the body on fire after the crime.
The "WDR" had previously reported on the charges. The District Court of Dortmund now decides on the approval.
A cyclist discovered the burning body on a path in a nature reserve in Hamm, east of Dortmund. The investigators assume that the woman had been dead for several days and that the body was burned there to remove traces. Her parents reported her missing on June 14 after she failed to return from walking her dog in the woods. The autopsy had shown that the girl did not die from the flames, but from "massive violence to the neck".
