Honour killing story

born: 1963
Attempted murder: 13 November 2012
Residence: Lüneburg
Origin: Turkey
Children: 3 (8, 15, 20 years)
Perpetrator: her divorced husband Hasan S. (48 years)
Emine and Hasan got engaged in 1988 and married 1 year later in Turkey. A few years later he takes a second wife and runs a snack bar in the old centre of Lüneburg. His wife divorced him in 2009, but lives next door with the 3 children. However, the divorce only became legally binding ten days before the crime, when he signed it at the Turkish consulate in Hanover. On 13 November 2012 Hasan attacks his wife with a kitchen knife in front of the snack bar - in front of the 8-year-old daughter. He rams a 25 cm long knife several times in her mother's upper body.

Passers-by intervene. Emine has to undergo emergency surgery, but is still in "very critical" condition. She is in a coma for 9 days and in hospital for 4 weeks. Hasan has been arrested. The perpetrator is known to the police for domestic violence.

In March 2013 the trial on attempted manslaughter will start in the regional court of Lüneburg. The verdict is unknown.
