BAVARIA – A German Computer expert Horst Koenig, 53,Â confessed in court that he killed his wife of ten years and cut her body into pieces because heÂ was looking forward to an â€˜excitingâ€™ sex holiday in Pattaya, Thailand.
His wife, identified only as a 37-year-old Filipina named Grace, was reportedly smashed by a hammer on her head while she was sleepingÂ on Nov. 28, 2015, Daily MailÂ reported.
In his statement at the Augsburg State Court in Bavaria, Koenig said he then suffocated his Filipino wifeÂ with a plastic bag before cutting her body into eight separate pieces with a saw.
The accused then narrated how he placed the dismembered corpse in separate garbage bags and stored them in a warehouse. He also admitted to clearing out her bank account afterwards. He went through all the trouble so that he can finally meet a Pattaya girl he had found online.
â€œI had checklists made, I worked it all out,â€ Koenig told the judges.
The police found that Koenig even researched â€œhow to kill a person with a single blow to the headâ€ on his computer, before committing the crime.
Koenig then told the judges that he met the Thai woman in December, explaining,â€What she promised, seemed exciting, and many of my secret desires seemed to come true. I wanted to be with this woman.â€
Before he flew to Thailand on December 2 he typed e-mails to friends and family members of Grace saying she had left him to return to the Philippines ‘but that I will win her back.
During his stay in Thailand, he said he planned to commit suicide but was unable to do so. â€œMy money was gone, the visa expired,â€ he said.
After staying in Thailand for three weeks, Koenig returned to Germany, where he was immediately arrested. Photos of a young Asian woman were later discovered in his possession.
â€œThis was a person with whom I got distracted on the internet from my gloomy daily life,â€ Koenig said. â€œMy wife increasingly lived on her mobile phone to the extent that she once burned a pot on the stove.â€
The trial is expected to end next week and he is staring at a life jail sentence for premeditated murder.
