Shadi Barham, 28, a Jordanian national who lives in the same asylum seeker compound as his victim, is reported to have stabbed the Ukrainian national to death in the ski town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen after she moved there to flee the Russian invasion.
Alina, 21, had gotten a job as a cleaner but was attacked as she left for work on October 25, after fleeing her home country.
Suspect Barham allegedly stabbed him with a knife before taking a cable car to a mountaintop restaurant, where he ordered a plate of sausages and chips as if nothing had happened.
Shadi Barham, a Jordanian national who lives in the same asylum seeker compound as his victim, allegedly stabbed the Ukrainian national to death in the ski town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
After finishing his £8 meal, he stayed at the restaurant on Osterfelderkopf, a 2,050-meter-high spot, according to the local newspaper BR24.
But the manager, who had heard about the attack and saw a photo of the suspect, recognized Barham and called the police, who arrived on the scene and arrested him.
Manager Andrew Syme, 51, later told local media: “I noticed it because of the strange order so early in the morning.” It was funny, but we didn’t think of anything else.
“When I recognized it later on the internet, I obviously reported it to the police.”
Barham was taken into custody while his victim was taken to the hospital.
However, despite the best efforts of the doctors, he succumbed to his injuries a month later on November 27.
The suspect was first charged with attempted murder and grievous bodily harm but is now likely to be charged with murder in the Bavarian city.
Police have not commented on the motive for the attack.
After plunging the knife and leaving the woman dying on the ground, he took a cable car to a mountaintop restaurant, where he ordered a plate of sausages and chips. The restaurant’s owner, Andrew Syme, 51, is shown posing for a photo.
