Illegal Afghan migrant who killed his German girlfriend sentenced to life in prison

The illegal Afghan immigrant Ahmad S. was found guilty of murder by the district court of Flensburg in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

He received life imprisonment for killing his 17-year-old German girlfriend “because she refused to convert to Islam”.

His ex, identified only by her first name Mireille, was stabbed 14 times in her flat, after she ended their relationship.

He arrived in Germany in 2015 as an unaccompanied minor refugee and filed for asylum – which was rejected.

The Afghan claimed that he was 18 years old, but the court had doubts and ordered an age test.

Forensic expert Sabine Gumpert testified at the start of the trial that he was at least 21 years old and that her examination strongly suggested he could even be 29 years old.

As a result, the court sentenced Ahmad S. in line with adult laws, instead of juvenile, which in Germany is customary for those under the age of 21.
Mireille and Ahmad S. were a couple for two years. But he constantly tried to control the teen, and forbade her from meeting other men.
Fed up with the on-off, highly emotional relationship, Mireille dumped him in February last year, after she refused to convert to Islam and wear a headscarf, prosecutors said.
The court heard that he felt angry about the separation – he was described as a “narcissistic personality”.
He called the emergency services himself after he stabbed Mireille 14 times with a kitchen knife on March 12, 2018.
He originally denied killing the girl, telling paramedics she had injured herself with the blade.
But evidence from his mobile phone, and images captured on CCTV, showed that he was in her apartment at the time of her death.
During sentencing, the judge told Ahmad S. he had disregarded the “personal value” of the teenager, whom he considered “his” property.

He will be imprisoned for at least 15 years.
