An asylum seeking refugee from Congo in Africa, has been arrested by German police in Berlin, accused of beheading his girlfriend in a ritualistic killing after stabbing her 30 times, The Daily Star reports.

The Congolese refugee, indentified as Yve M, 39, is accused of stabbing his girlfriend, 39-year-old Tounay G, 30 times in the stomach and chest before beheading the corpse.

He then cut off her little finger from her right hand and her left arm before decorating her body. Her body had also been decorated with stones, string and feathers in what investigators believe was a “ritual killing”.

Police attended the apartment after neighbours claimed there was a rancid stench coming from the property.

Prosecutors are calling for the accused to be committed to a psychiatric ward as they believe he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and “religious delusions”.
