Ulm (Baden-Württemberg) – maximum sentence for Ece's murderer!

In courtroom 126 of the Ulm district court, the verdict was pronounced against the accused Okba Michael B. (27): life imprisonment if the guilt is particularly serious. An early release from prison after 15 years is almost impossible!

The asylum seeker from Eritrea attacked Ece S. (14) and her friend on the way to school on December 5 with a knife. The 14-year-old died, the other girl survived with serious injuries.

According to the indictment, the asylum seeker wanted to use the weapon on the day of the crime to force the district office to issue a passport. He wanted to marry a woman in Africa in order to return to Germany with her. He believed the district office had ruined his life.

But during the proceedings, the defendant's problems emerged: according to the expert, Okba Michael B. is said to be addicted to gambling and to have lost his wages (up to 2,000 euros a month) before the crime in some cases after a week. He also suffered from stomach and intestinal problems and struggled with erectile dysfunction. He blamed his family doctor because he couldn't heal him.

As the victims walked past the asylum shelter, he said he believed they saw the knife. That's why he claims to have spontaneously decided to kill the students.

"There are always crimes that are particularly touching," said the presiding judge, Wolfgang Tresenreiter, in his verdict. "It's not every day that two attorneys burst into tears during their pleadings."

He did not believe the defendant's motive. He assumes that Okba did not want to blackmail Michael B. with a knife at the district office for a passport, but only wanted to take revenge. The accused wrote on a pad: "No wife, no life." Translated, this means: No woman, no life.

And further: "German dirty" and "punishment, punishment". The judge continued: “The picture that emerges is that of a person who is angry and has thoughts of revenge. He wants to kill, but the girls who happen to be passing by disturb him.”

Local residents laid flowers at the scene last December.  The accused lived in the white house next door.  The building has since been demolished at the request of the victims' families

In court, Okba Michael B. showed no remorse. The expert reported that he was not thinking about the crime at all, but about how this matter would turn out for him.

In the verdict, the judge said the accused's guilt was particularly serious because there were not one, but two victims. In addition, there is more than one characteristic of murder: insidiousness and the intention to enable. He committed the act in order to be able to carry out his original intention of attacking a clerk at the district office.

According to the prosecutor, Okba Michael B. can be deported to his home country during his detention. Prosecutor Nadine Schmelzer (34): "I can't imagine a better judgment."
