North Rhine-Westphalia: man kills his wife: rejection in psychiatry denied

Dortmund (dpa / lnw) - The North Rhine-Westphalia Ministry of Health has rejected allegations that a 56-year-old had tried in vain to be admitted to a psychiatric ward before killing his wife and then himself in Dortmund. This emerges from a response from the state government to a request from AfD MPs, which was published on Wednesday.

The man asked in the outpatient clinic for an appointment to clarify planned hospital treatment and was informed by an employee of a possible appointment as part of the weekly outpatient clinic, according to the letter from the state government, which refers to the Ministry of Health. "There was no mention of an emergency or crisis situation."

For the public prosecutor's office in Dortmund, the matter is not yet so clear: the procedure for suspected murder against the 56-year-old was therefore discontinued due to his death. However, in the death investigation proceedings, any third-party negligence is checked.

According to a media report to which the ministry referred, the man is said to have sought help in a Dortmund psychiatric clinic shortly before the crime. He is said to have felt the urge to do violence to others and himself, but was sent away again and referred to the family doctor, it said.

The 56-year-old, who according to the public prosecutor suffered from psychological problems, hit his 42-year-old wife with a blunt object on June 11 in Dortmund-Hörde in the shared apartment. She later died in hospital. The man himself jumped out of a window on the second floor of the apartment building and died.
