In Germany, one of the most horrific spousal abuse cases the country has ever seen is about to go to trial. Known as Nurettin B, the abuser, had apparently forced his two-year-old son to watch as he tied a noose around Kader K., 28, the child’s mother. He had dragged her over stones and cobble stones, where she sustained serious injuries.
Nurettin B is now on trial for attempted murder.
He had put the child in the backseat of the car, and he had tied the other end of the rope to the back of the car. He took off speeding, dragging the young woman behind him.
It wasn’t until the rope finally snapped in front of a local restaurant, that passerby were able to rush to her rescue.
The Daily Mail reports:
Kader K., 28, sustained serious injuries when she was dragged over asphalt and cobblestones of Hamelin in Germany at high speed from the back of a VW Passat driven by Nurettin B.
Their two-year-old son Cudi watched screaming as he witnessed his mother’s ordeal through the back window.
Kader K. was only saved when the rope snapped outside a fast-food restaurant in the town and passers-by rushed to her aid.
She lay in a coma for weeks after the brutal attack in November last year but is now fit enough to appear to Hanover State Court to see her ex stand trial for attempted murder that could put him behind bars for life.
‘I have hardly experienced a case where the intention to kill is so clearly visible,’ said her lawyer. ‘It is an absolute miracle that she is alive at all.’
The couple have Kurdish roots and married in March 2013. Their son was born in January 2014 and in May 2015 they parted.
Nurettin, 39, who is a German citizen, is said to have had strained relations with his ex wife including when they met to discuss Cudi’s upbringing and maintenance payments.
It is alleged that a month before the attack in Hamelin he told her: ‘One of you two will soon no longer be alive.’
On the evening of November 20 a quarrel over money escalated into the brutal attempt on her life.
She was stabbed before the rope was looped around her neck, it is claimed. She was struck over the head with the blunt side of an axe before he accelerated the car and drove her around the town, prosecutors say.
After the rope broke in front of the Golden Chicken Grill restaurant he drove with his screaming child to the local police station where he told a bemused desk officer: ‘It was me, it was me.’
Kader K. was only released from hospital six weeks ago. She has suffered brain damage and will need years of constant therapy.
Her lawyer, Roman von Alvensleben, said her son also suffered severe psychiatric trauma at witnessing this mother’s ordeal.
