Stralsund (dpa) - In front of the district court of Stralsund, the trial of two young men for the murder of 18-year-old Maria from Zinnowitz on Usedom has begun.

The 19- and 21-year-olds killed the pregnant woman mid-March in the view of the prosecutor treacherously and out of blood lust. The two Germans wanted to see a man die, as the court said. The men from Zinnowitz and a neighboring town were arrested a month after the crime. The murder weapon has disappeared to this day. In pre-trial detention they allegedly incriminated each other. The 19-year-old admitted to having stabbed.
