Naumburg (Saxony-Anhalt) – The death of little Hiab is atoned for. The mother, who killed her son (14 months) with two stabs in the neck, has to go to prison for seven and a half years.
On Monday, the judges at Halle Regional Court handed down their verdict on the young woman from Eritrea, Africa. Already at the beginning of the process, Yodit T. (26) admitted in tears: “I stabbed him.”
Yodit T. has already confessed to killing her 14-month-old son
The day before the crime she had a fight with the child’s father. Hiab’s father Regen T. (24) did not want his mother and child to leave Naumburg.
“He was against me going to Munich, where my compatriots and a cousin of my father live,” said the mother. At six o’clock in the morning, Yodit T. took her son out of bed and took a bread knife with a 28-centimeter-long blade from the kitchen.
She put the kid on the floor in the bathroom, stabbed him, and fled when the child stopped moaning.
The prosecution assumed that the defendant was mentally ill due to her dramatic escape in 2013 over Ethiopia, Sudan, Libya and Italy to Germany and was therefore in a state of reduced guilt.
Child Father Regen T .: “I do not know how this could happen.
Nevertheless, the woman will serve the sentence in a detention center. The judges are convinced that psychiatric accommodation has no chance of success due to the lack of treatment and high language barriers.
