Alexander W. (63) cannot feel joy after his acquittal. He lost his wife (67). He had lived with her for three decades, most recently in a prefab apartment in Flöha.

According to the court, the act was triggered by the state of health of the truck driver, who had developed from depression to delusion. Everything came together on March 21st.

After getting up, Alexander W. pressed a pillow in his wife’s face until she stopped breathing. The subsequent cause of death: lack of oxygen. Shortly thereafter, he dialed 911 and said, “I killed my wife.” He failed to give the judges a more precise answer.

Psychiatrists, doctors and consultants tried to solve the death puzzle. The illness, coupled with the fear of no longer being able to do the job as a truck driver, is the most obvious explanation. Worries may have become so entrenched that he would rather kill his wife than see her lifeless.

The judges around Janko Ehrlich did not follow the suggestion to place the flea hae in a clinic. Due to the lack of criminal responsibility, the relationship to the woman based on dependency and because he had never been conspicuous before, the verdict was: acquittal.
