Mother murdered in front of Kindergarten

A mother was stabbed in broad day light in front of a Kindergarten in the Carinthian capital of Klagenfurt yesterday (Thursday) as she went to pick up her son.

The 43-year-old woman died at the scene after she was stabbed to death by her husband in front of the kindergarten at around midday as many parents were picking up their children.

As the woman went to collect her four-year-old son she was fatally stabbed.

Gottlieb Türk from the police said: "We believe the pair became involved in a  confrontation. As a result the man then stabbed the victim numerous times with a kitchen knife."

It is believed the pair were having problems in their marriage and were going to divorce.

The man was arrested at the scene. The child did not witness the incident as was still inside the kindergarten at the time.

However, it is reported that some of the kindergarten children witnessed the incident.

The children are being given counselling by the Red Cross Crisis Intervention Team.

Georg Wurzer from the organisation said: "We are listening to the children, letting them talk and tell us what happened, we are trying to make sure the children understand and can find peace."

The children of the victim - the four-year-old son and the eleven-year-old daughter are also being looked after by the Red Cross Crisis Team.

The man is still being questioned by police.
