Oldenburg/Brake (dpa/lni) – Following the violent death of a 26-year-old woman in Brake an der Unterweser, the Oldenburg prosecutor’s office has filed murder charges against a 34-year-old woman. The man is suspected of suffocating the woman in her Brake apartment in December last year, prosecutors said Thursday. Later that same day he would have attacked a neighbor with a knife in the stairwell of the multiparty building with the intention of killing her. The woman was seriously injured and was able to escape. Therefore, the alleged perpetrator is also charged with attempted murder and dangerous bodily harm.
The suspect was arrested after the crime. He is in custody. The Public Ministry did not provide information on the possible motive.
