A Somalian asylum seeker has been charged with raping two disabled men in a care home and murdering one of their wives in Germany.
The 18-year-old is said to have broken into the sheltered accommodation in Neuenhaus in the county of Betheim late last year and sneaked into the room of a paralyzed 59-year-old man to rape him.
Police say the migrant then made his way into an adjoining room and raped another man before being confronted by the victim's 87-year-old wife, who is accused of killing.
It is understood the woman was living in the same room as her husband at the Haus am Bürgerpark care home.
The horrific incident is said to have happened in the early hours of October 22 last year.
As he was sexually abusing the second victim, the Somalian is said to have been surprised by the wife and killed her using 'great force' to avoid being caught for his previous crimes, according to German police.
The accused is currently being held in custody in a psychiatric hospital and his trial will be heard before the Landgericht Osnabrück, which is the large youth chamber as jury court.
