The 36-year-old refugee is suspected of attempted murder after hurling the children out the window of the asylum centre where the family lived.Más...
His seven-year-old daughter and five-year-old son suffered broken bones and skull fractures in the fall. His one-year-old daughter landed on her brother and escaped the potentially deadly fall with bruises and a liver contusion.
Prosecutors say the suspect has admitted to throwing his children out the window of the asylum accommodation, formerly a Chinese restaurant, in Lohmar.
According to the indictment, the crime stemmed from the 36-year-old’s frustration with his wife, who “in Germany no longer wished to accept the roles they had at home, and did not want to put up with everything he wanted any more.”
