Chilean Sentenced to 7 Years Prison in Germany for Murder

BERLIN A German regional court on Monday sentenced a Chilean man to seven years in prison for the murder of a Norwegian tourist in June 2015.

Jorge V., 39, was found guilty of stabbing the 36-year-old Norwegian to death during a fight in Berlin and stuffing her in a suitcase which he dumped in a river.

On Feb. 13, 2015, a Berlin local found the suitcase floating in the River Spree and dragged it to shore, discovering the body of the young woman.

German police were immediately alerted and, using the ring she was wearing as identification, were able to put together the events and connect her murder to the Chilean gallery owner.

Meanwhile, the attacker had escaped to Mexico, where he was arrested and subsequently extradited to Germany.

The Berlin court ordered that, along with his prison sentence, he undergo treatment for alcohol and drug use, as he claimed that he had perpetrated the attacks while under the influence.
