ICC Note:
A court in Freiburg, Germany has sentenced Daniel E. to life imprisonment after stabbing his Christian housemate, Yvonne T., to death in August 2016. Sources report that the killer fatally attacked the victim after asking her views on marriage, citing religious hatred as a central motivation in the murder. Daniel’s attorney and case experts suggested that he suffered from psychological or mental illness, noting that Daniel named Hannibal Lecter, a fictional serial killer from the film “Silence of the Lambs,” as a role model. 
02/02/2017 Germany (Independent) – A self-proclaimed “anti-theist” has stabbed his Christian housemate to death in Germany after demanding her opinion on same-sex marriage.
Daniel E, 25, was jailed for life at a court in Freiburg on Monday for killing the 31-year-old at their flat in August.
The pair did not meet until they moved into the student apartment in the summer, with Daniel E swiftly angered by his victim’s Christianity.
The woman was an active member of her local parish and aspired to work in a “prayer house”, the DPA news agency reported.
Just 10 days after moving in together, Daniel stormed into his victim’s room and asked to hear her position was on same-sex marriage, prosecutors said.
When she rejected it, he withdrew a knife hidden in his pocket and stabbed her as she sat on the bed. The woman managed to reach the stairwell but was wounded several times in the back and died at the scene.
Daniel, whose name was not released because of German privacy laws, attempted to kill himself but was unsuccessful and was arrested.
