Germany: Fritz von Weizsaecker's killer sentenced to 12 years, sent to psychiatric hospital

A Berlin court sentenced a killer of Fritz von Weizsaecker, a son of former German president Richard von Weizsaecker, to 12 years in prison and sent him to a psychiatric hospital, Wednesday. «A reduced sentence was appropriate with a condition that a doctor would determine in 10, 15, or 20 years whether the accused still represents danger, and that's why the sentence is not so irrelevant,» explained von Weizsaecker's family lawyer, Stephan Maigne. 57-year-old Gregor S. who stabbed the victim to death on November 19, 2019, was also accused of attempted murder, after stabbing a policeman who witnessed the killing and stopped the assailant. Fritz von Weizsaecker was one of four children of Richard von Weizsaecker, who was a German president between 1984 and 1994 (West Germany 1984-1990; reunified Germany 1990-1994.)
