A 42-year-old man from Rotterdam has been sentenced to six years in prison and a hospital order for stabbing his 8-year-old daughter to death.
The judge calls it “shocking and horrifying” that a father killed his own daughter. The sentence is lower than the requirement of 10 years in prison and TBS, which the Public Prosecution Service wanted.
The incident was last March at the Maasstad Hospital in Rotterdam. The man had gone to hospital with his daughter because he was not feeling well. In the hospital, he stabbed the 8-year-old girl with scissors. She was still undergoing resuscitation and emergency surgery, but soon died of her injuries.
The man told police that he thought his daughter had ended up in a pedo network and was being abused. He wanted to spare her further suffering. However, he said in court that he cannot remember the incident.
Experts concluded after research that the man has multiple disorders and delusions. They would stem from his youth. He was abused by his father as a child. The judge took his mental condition into account in the judgment.
Both the girl’s mother and the defendant’s lawyer said at an earlier hearing that mental health care has failed, Rijnmond writes. According to them, the suspect should have been admitted earlier. A week before the drama, the man in a bulletproof vest stood in his daughter’s schoolyard.
