Honour killing story

born: 1969
stabbed: August 3, 2014
Location: Afferde / Hameln (Lower Saxony)
Origin: Victim: Germany; Perpetrator: Turkey
Children: 2 sons (15 and 17 years)
Perpetrator: Erdan, her divorced living husband (42 years)
Christian and Erdan have two teenage sons. In June 2014 Christine will divorce and move with the sons to another apartment. Because of marital violence she gets a restraining order for her husband.

Erdan does not comply with the restraining order. On August 3, he hid near the driveway of her house, beat her up, and stabbed her. The landlord, who had rushed to help her, was also wounded. The perpetrator has also cut himself. Christine dies at the scene of the crime. The sons are probably on the premises, but they don't see the crime.

As the neighbours inform the police, the perpetrator is arrested near the crime scene. The knife has been confiscated. The sons are placed in a foster family.

In January 2015, the proceedings against the trained lathe operator will begin. In February he was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder by the Hanover Regional Court.
