“The expert’s report is clear in this regard,” said Tina Frimmel-Hesse, spokeswoman for the Klagenfurt public prosecutor’s office. The man suffers from a mental disorder, his lawyer also told ORF-Kärnten. A judge imposed pre-trial detention, which has now been converted into a detention due to insanity, as Frimmel-Hesse explained. The public prosecutor’s office will apply for his placement in an institution.
The Armenian attacked the woman with a kitchen knife and stabbed her dozens of times. A passer-by finally intervened and pushed the man off, who then ran away. The woman was taken to the Klagenfurt Clinic with serious injuries and operated on.
Reports from the police interrogation made the blood run cold. “He planned to kill the first person he saw on the street with a knife because the unemployment office had canceled his pay,” said an investigator. Unbelievable: He wanted to cut the woman’s throat.
The murder weapon was secured in the Armenian’s inner-city apartment. A police officer: “Because he didn’t have any money, he wanted to get something to eat after the bloody act – even by force of arms if someone prevented him from doing so.” The victim had to undergo emergency surgery and is still in intensive care.
