A woman who killed and then dismembered her ex-spouse in Vienna back in February 2019 has been handed a 17-year prison sentence and banned from public affairs for ten years.
The court in Szolnok, western Hungary, convicted the woman for killing her partner in a Viennese apartment and transporting the dismembered body in a rental car to Hungary, where she hid the remains in an irrigation canal with the help of her mother, who received a two-year prison sentence, suspended for four years.
The court said in a statement that the 30-year-old woman had admitted to killing her ex-partner but claimed to have done so in self-defense. A second hearing is set to take place at a Szeged court after the woman appealed the sentence, and she will remain in custody pending its outcome, the statement said.
