Why did Klaus O. poison sprinkled on the break loaves of colleagues? No answer is to be expected at the regional court of Bielefeld today.

In the process, the poisoned break bread, and to the charge of attempted murder, the court in the afternoon a judgment. An answer to the Why not get the lawyers for the victims also to the conclusion.

The former colleagues of the defendant had appealed the case on the pleadings, again, to the 57-year-old accused, finally to the subject. You wanted to hear from his mouth why they kidneys have been over the years after repeated poisoning is getting worse, sick. A third colleague could not attend the proceedings. His parents described on the witness stand, as her previously happy life son, started with slight Numbness and weakness phases, mysteriously, got sicker and sicker and now in a coma with a severe brain damage, a care case. Prospects for improvement there is not.

The desperate parents on the one hand, a defendant, who showed in the process hardly a stirring sat. Until recently, Klaus O. said nothing to the allegations. Process observers would have seen a short Twitch, as the mother of the young man stood him in the stuff as “Wrong”.

her son had Brought to the training during the course of studies in the operation in lock-Stukenbrock helped. Like his older colleagues, he had a distant relationship to the defendant. The trained tool-maker, was considered to be technically knowledgeable, helped with problems, and went otherwise to his colleagues out of the way. A conversation about Private a Cup of coffee. But also no dispute.

His colleagues fell in the spring of 2018 from the clouds, as the thing blew up. The lawyer of a sick person in addition to plaintiff’s said before the start: “There was a relationship of trust as in any operation among colleagues, no one has expected something like this.”

Out the deeds, as one of today’s co-plaintiff in eye-catching white powder on his sandwiches discovered and photographed. A quick set up video surveillance Klaus O. convicted in the act. In a supposedly unobserved Moment, he went out of the pockets of colleagues, repeated doses, sprinkled the powder on the bread and grabbed everything calmly again.

In a murder trial, none of the colleagues, thought up to this point, even more of a bad joke. As the investigators of disease and deaths in staff closer lighted, was the extent. In Klaus O., the investigators found several chemicals, such as lead acetate, Cadmium, lead and mercury, and a notes notebook. Moreover, the traces documented on his Computer, that he worked with the chemicals.

According to the Prosecutor, the man should be sentenced to life imprisonment followed by preventive detention. Life imprisonment for attempted murder of the exception are met in Germany. “I have seen a judgment in my career”, says the Berlin victims ‘ lawyer Roland Weber. At the district court of Bielefeld could be announced on Thursday but just such a sentence. As Klaus O. is mentally healthy, he is fully culpable. A penalty reduction will be eliminated.

in the opinion of the defender was justified because two of the cases with kidney damage, at most, a sentence of imprisonment of a maximum of nine years. A reference to the brain damage of the third victim, Klaus O. had been in the procedure has not been established.

in addition to the plaintiff and the Prosecutor’s office see it differently. Although no substance has been proven in the body of the youngest victim, years after the suspected poisoning. In nature, but such intoxications are not in Germany, therefore, the defendants found, the chemicals must be the trigger. And why for life? “The trial of the murder in this case is very close to the death,” said the Prosecutor in his summation.
