Lüneburg (AP) - A 38-year-old man from the Rostock region has been sentenced to life imprisonment by the Lüneburg district court after the murder of a mother.

The 4th Large Criminal Chamber also determined the particular gravity of the guilt.

“They were cool, cold-blooded, and deliberate.

Just out of revenge.

It is a hideous act.

You hit the head, neck and stomach 30 times with an ax, ”said the presiding judge Franz Kompisch on Monday in the verdict.

The judgment of the jury is not yet final (file number 27 Ks 3/21).

The German had met a woman five years his junior during a retraining in Bavaria and stalked her.

Because she had reported him and he could not find out her address at Rostock, he drove to her parents' house in Wrestedt (Uelzen district) in December.

The defendant immediately attacked the 56-year-old mother.

Then he turned himself in.
