In the town of Hechtsheim outside Mainz, Martin Klein lent money to his ne'er-do-well younger brother Jakob Klein who refused to repay him. Martin was going to start legal proceedings against his brother but Jakob ambushed and shot him as he and two companions returned from church. Martin's two companions gave chase and both were stabbed to death by Jakob who escaped on horseback. Jakob was eventually apprehended by police and sentenced to death for the three murders.
