On 9 July 2012 students will find a corpse in Wimpasing on Lake Starnberger. It is a 35-year-old Romanian woman who works as a kitchen assistant in Zillertal (Tyrol/Austria). The suspicion falls on her 47-year-old partner, a Turk with an Austrian passport. After the crime, he takes the victim's car to Switzerland, from where he flees to Italy and finally to Turkey. He probably also has a Turkish passport.

The police find the getaway car in Switzerland.

Three days after the body was found, the perpetrator was arrested in central Rome. The Public Prosecutor in Traunstein requests extradition.

In March 2013 the trial will start at the court of Traunstein. You can hear that there are 17 stab wounds and violence on the throat. Witnesses report that there has been violence in the relationship before. The perpetrator has been sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for manslaughter.
