A woman who killed her mother with a porcelain cat has been jailed for seven years by a court in Germany.
The incident took place in Puttenhausen, which is a village in the southern German state of Bavaria, when Marie D., whose full name has been withheld due to strict local privacy laws but who is 33, killed her mother, Annette-Katrin D., 61, with a porcelain cat on 3rd July this year.
The regional court in Regensburg jailed the woman for seven years on Thursday 16th December.
Presiding judge Michael Hammer also ordered that she be placed in a psychiatric hospital.
She had admitted to investigators to having killed her mother and had been charged with murder.
The woman attacked her mother in her apartment in July this year with a porcelain cat, with which she beat her mother, and a knife, among other items, which were not disclosed.
Local media outlet Bild reports that the victim bled to death.
The daughter reportedly called the police at 4.29am and asked them to “lock me up forever”.
The woman reportedly suffers from borderline personality disorder as well as alcoholism.
The verdict is not yet legally binding and can be appealed.
