Told senior prosecutor, Dr Bernhard Ebinger, ‘[On] Friday afternoon, a 41-year-old Syrian in an apartment in Mühlacker killed his 37-year-old wife and first fled with one of their sons on foot.
‘The minor in the apartment, the remaining daughter, communicated to police at 4.30pm what had occurred.
‘A large contingent of police went after after the fugitive offender and was able to catch him in Mühlacker a short time later.
‘He remains under arrest.’
Germany’s Mühlacker Tagblatt quoted the landlady of the home who said they were ‘very nice family’ with ‘very dear children’.
The outlets reported the family arriving as refugees from Syria, but that the father no longer lived with them.
The couple’s children – two sons and one daughter – have since been handed over to youth services.
The fatal stabbing is the latest installment of violent episodes in Germany, which according to a government-based study made available to Reuters showed a jump in crime linked to migrants aged between 14 and 30.
