Freiburg (dpa / lsw) – In the process of a hammer attack on the 91-year-old neighbor, the Freiburg Regional Court ordered a 56-year-old man to be placed in a psychiatric clinic. A court spokesman said on Monday. The man had been accused, among other things, of attempted manslaughter in combination with dangerous and serious bodily harm. He admitted the crime in court.

It had been a so-called security procedure, in which it was about accommodation in a specialist clinic. The 56-year-old was considered mentally ill and not guilty at the time of the crime. According to the court spokesman, the court’s decision was made last Friday. (Ref.: 1 Ks 800 Js 184/22)

The men got into a fight on New Year’s Day 2022 in Waldkirch (Emmendingen district) because of a dead bird in the hallway. The 56-year-old hit the older man on the head with a hammer and severely injured his eye with the hammer handle. The victim has been blind in one eye ever since.
