The public prosecutor is demanding life imprisonment in the case of the gas station murder in Idar-Oberstein. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the 50-year-old accused shot a cashier last year because he had drawn his attention to the applicable mask requirement.

In the trial for the killing of a gas station employee in the dispute over the mask requirement, the public prosecutor’s office has demanded life imprisonment. A 50-year-old is accused of murder because he is said to have shot the employee in Idar-Oberstein in September 2021. The act caused great horror.

According to the indictment, the accused felt burdened by the corona rules and, after a verbal confrontation while shopping, held his victim responsible for the overall situation. Accordingly, he left the gas station first, but returned and shot the employee. The 50-year-old admitted the allegations and expressed regret. The public prosecutor’s plea was postponed several times due to requests from the defense.
