A man was arrested on charges of murder after he allegedly raped and killed a young woman, police in Austria said.
Police said that the murder of the 20-year-old woman of Saalfelden, Pinzgau, was not a case of domestic violence, but a ritual killing.
According to the police investigation, the body of the victim was found in a pool of blood in the bathroom of a 20-year-old man, who police believed was her boyfriend.
The man was arrested at the scene without incident, and it was determined that he was not the woman’s boyfriend. Detectives said that the man stabbed the woman and cut Nazi symbols into her skin with a knife.
The defendant said that he was not in a relationship with the murdered woman and that there had been no argument before he attacked her.
A court ordered the man to undergo a psychological evaluation.
