Afghan Man Who Stabbed Pregnant Girlfriend & Killed Unborn Child Sentenced To Life In Prison
A man was today sentenced to life in prison by a German court for stabbing a pregnant woman and killing her foetus in a hospital.
The 25-year-old convict attacked the 25-year-old victim in a hospital room in Bad Kreuznach town back in January.
The pregnant woman, who is from Poland, was saved after an emergency operation, but her unborn child died the following day.
The perpetrator was the father of the baby.
The presiding judge, Folkmar Broszukat, said the Afghan man was found guilty of attempted murder, grievous bodily harm and induced abortion.
Prosecutors had called for a life sentence for the man, his lawyer, Olaf Langhanki, had asked for a sentence with a limited term, leaving the length to the court.
