Germany: Muslim migrant murders dad of refugee worker who got him a job to help her dad at home
A 20-year-old Afghan man's been arrested over the murder of an 85-year-old pensioner in north Germany.
Dietrich P. was found dead with his throat slit in his home in Wittenburg, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania in the early hours of Saturday.
The suspect had been hired by Dietrich P.’s daughter, a refugee aid worker, to carry out some work at the house, including gardening and cleaning, over the weekend.
Dietrich P. had needed daily assistance following the death of his wife in 2012, and in August last year, the 20-year-old suspect had spent a week working as his carer.
The 85-year-old was attacked in his bed around 2am on Saturday morning, according to a police statement.
The murder was witnessed by a home care service worker via a video baby monitor which had been set up to help keep an eye on the elderly man, Bild reports. The cries of the 85-year-old woke the carer, who called emergency services when they saw the attack
