Abstract

After a turbulent relationship, Phillipp Maier planned to reconcile with his girlfriend, Anna Agatha Weisensee, or commit a murder/suicide. He found her at her father's wine establishment. They took a walk but started to argue. He admitted his plan so, out of fear of death, she said she would take him back. When she spotted two men on the street, she called out for their protection. They were taking her home when Maier chased after them and stabbed Weisensee twice so violently that his dagger broke. After several unsuccessful suicide attempts, Maier was arrested. He was found guilty of murder according to Article 146, Part I of the Criminal Code and sentenced to death.
