- Held in the Roman prison of Rebibbia, he throws his two sons off the stairs: one is dead
Share24 September 2019 "Assolvetela". This is the request of the Public Prosecutor Eleonora Fini for Alice Sebesta, the inmate who killed her two children hurling them from the stairs of Rebibbia's 'nursery' section. The accusation appeals to the 'total defect of mind' but before deciding the preliminary judge decided to have the appraiser Fabrizio Iecher assess the permanent status - or not - of the condition of social dangerousness of the woman.
The psychiatrist will go to the Rems of Castiglione delle Stiviere (Mantova) where Alice Sebesta is a guest for a visit and then will return in the courtroom in the middle of November to illustrate the results of her investigations. We will have to wait until next December to have the sentence that will decide the fate of the German prisoner who killed the two children, hurling them from the stairs of the 'Nest Section' of the Roman prison where she was restricted for drug dealing. But already today there was a fundamental passage. The prosecutor Eleonora Fini, in fact, asked the gup Anna Maria Govoni to order the acquittal of the woman by certifying in the sentence the "total defect of mind".
It was 18 September 2018 when the German prisoner waited for the other inmates to line up for lunch, approached the stairs of the nest section of the Roman prison and threw her two children down: the 6-month-old girl died instantly, the little boy of just over two years died a few days later. "I am a good mother, I am aware of what I did. I wanted to free my children, I was afraid of the mafia and I wanted to protect them. I was afraid of the things I read in the newspapers," he said during the interrogation of the arrest validation.
The story over time has been enriched with some important passages. First of all, a probationary accident was established in order to assess the woman's ability to understand and want, as well as her social dangerousness.
The results of the first expert opinion were: Alice Sebesta was to be considered capable of understanding and wanting at the time of the fact, even an insideration of the "deliberate intake of drugs in a massive dose for a month before the crime took place". This conclusion went in the opposite direction to that of the consultant of the Pm who had expressed himself for the total incapacity.
At the beginning of the year, the prosecutor asked and obtained from the investigating judge to replace the expert in question. And it came to the appointment of the psychiatrist Fabrizio Iecher, who concluded that Alice Sebesta "is suffering from a bipolar schizoaffective disorder" and at the time of the facts "was totally incapable of understanding but sufficiently able to want". In short, two conflicting reports. Now the word goes to the judge.
