A Cologne court on Tuesday sentenced a man and a woman to jail for kicking a homeless man to death, and then burning his body last year.
On a cold November night last year, police discovered a fire in an underpass in the inner city of Cologne, the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) reports. Only upon closer inspection did they realize that there was a body within the flames.
A medic called to the scene could only confirm the death.
Further investigations revealed that the man had regularly slept in the underpass, and that two other homeless people were responsible for his murder. More
