An unemployed man killed the mother and 14-year-old daughter

In August, the bodies of a 32-year-old woman and her 14-year-old daughter were discovered in their Vienna-Mariahilf apartment. The suspected perpetrator is a 49-year-old Tunisian man who was in a relationship with the mother at the time of the murders. According to police, the woman’s 6 and 9-year-old children witnessed the killings.

After fleeing to France, the suspect was eventually apprehended and brought to trial. During his trial, he initially claimed that the deaths were accidental and related to consensual sexual activity, alleging that the woman had asked him to choke her and never woke up, causing her daughter to become hysterical. However, he later changed his plea to guilty of double murder following a statement from the 9-year-old brother.

The defendant had been receiving emergency assistance and was unemployed for seven years prior to the murders. He had also been actively seeking a new partner online before fleeing to France. On Wednesday evening, the verdict was announced, and the defendant received a life sentence.

The case has deeply affected Austria and has highlighted the prevalence of domestic violence in the country. Austria has a significant problem with women being murdered by their partners or ex-partners, with an average of 33 women dying each year due to domestic violence. While the government has pledged to improve protections for victims, critics argue that more must be done to address the root causes of the issue. This case serves as a reminder of the importance of addressing domestic violence and the impact it can have on families and communities.

The tragic deaths of the 32-year-old woman and her 14-year-old daughter have left Austria in shock. Their story is a painful reminder of the devastating effects of domestic violence, which continues to be a serious issue in Austria. Every year, dozens of women lose their lives at the hands of their partners or ex-partners, leaving behind shattered families and communities.
