Under a pretext, according to the indictment, they met with Maryam in mid-July 2021, killed her and cut up her body. On surveillance videos at Berlin’s Südkreuz train station, her brothers could be seen pulling a very baggy suitcase behind them. In it they are said to have brought their dead sister to Bavaria. Where their older brother lives, the two men promised each other more calm and less attention when disposing of the corpse. The alleged killers have been in custody since August 4th.

The young mother of a daughter (now 10) and a son (13) came to Germany as an asylum seeker from Afghanistan in 2013. In their strictly Islamic marriage, there was repeated violence. In 2017 Maryam no longer wanted: She got a divorce under German law. But the husband did not give up, prevented the separation according to Islamic law.
