Asylum seeker “child refugee” who raped and murdered EU official’s daughter is jailed for life in Germany

An Afghan man who claimed to be underage to claim before raping and murdering an EU official’s daughter has been sentenced to life in jail in Germany today.

Hussein Khavari, who broke down and asked for forgiveness during court hearings into the brutal murder of Maria Ladenburger, 19, was told he will serve an indeterminate sentence because of the brutality of the crime.

Despite previously claiming to be 17 years old, he was convicted as an adult, as age tests on his teeth showed him to be at least 22, perhaps older.
