Honour killing story

Alexandra K.
born: 1986
killed: 3 February 2012
Residence: Schorndorf (Baden-Württemberg)
Origin: Victim: Greece; Perpetrator: Pakistan
Children: none
Perpetrator: her ex-boyfriend Naveed Hussain (27 years)
Naveed Hussain lives in a social housing development in Urbach. He is unemployed or works as a pizza delivery boy. He is from Pakistan, has a British passport and has lived in Germany since childhood. He is known to the police for, among other things, deprivation of liberty and ill-treatment. At the end of 2011 his Greek girlfriend Alexandra broke up with him, possibly because he had beaten her.

On 3 February 2012 Alexandra meets Naveed in a garden shed, perhaps for a discussion. There he kills her with a bat hammer, a heavy hammer. Later, the acquaintance who owns the arbor finds the corpse with a smashed skull and calls the police.

The police are looking for the perpetrator across the country. Three days later he is imprisoned in a collective accommodation for asylum seekers in Schwäbisch Gmünd.

In September 2012, the murder investigation starts at the Stuttgart Court. A witness will be questioned who reports that Naveed revealed during the flight that he does not regret the act, but finds it appropriate. As a result, Naveed will be sentenced to life imprisonment in October. The court sees the motive as "excessive jealousy, ruthless selfishness and a despicable image of the woman. However, the particular seriousness of the guilt has not been established.
