A 14-year-old girl was killed in a violent act in Middle Franconia on Friday. As a suspect, the police have provisionally arrested the three-year-old brother of the young people. The 41-year-old mother suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital, a police spokesman said.
On the morning of Epiphany - January 6th is a public holiday in Bavaria - the police received the emergency call from Weisendorf (Erlangen-Höchstadt district). It was initially unclear who dropped him. The officials were able to temporarily arrest the 17-year-old brother "near the scene of the crime".
According to the first impression, the girl died from a "pointed, sharp object". The crime had taken place in a semi-detached house in a residential area. According to initial findings, the 41-year-old lived here with the 14-year-old girl and the 17-year-old. Weisendorf is near Erlangen and has about 6800 inhabitants.
