Father faces trial for murdering own child
A sixty-four-year-old man who murdered his twelve-year-old daughter in a fit of jealousy has gone on trial. The highly publicized court case opened in Liberec on Thursday with the state attorney demanding exceptional punishment. The man himself has refused to testify in court. Psychological tests indicate he is not deranged and was fully aware of the crime he committed. The man murdered his own child in a fit of rage against her mother who was working abroad at the time and saw the incident on Skype. The girl was repeatedly stabbed with a kitchen knife and was heard pleading with her father to spare her life. The man could get 20 years to a life sentence.
