Beer can as motive for murder

A simple beer can was the reason for a murder in Vienna. Now two men have to stand their trial, because they were involved in the killing of a homeless man for a can of beer.

The 24-year-old main defendant is talking about self-defence. He explained he was attacked by the 50-year-old homeless man because of his beer can, and he just wanted to protect himself and his precious drink. The 50-year-old man was killed with a knife. He received several stitches in his chest.

It’s not clear why this certain can of beer was so important for the homeless man to risk his life. The act happened directly next to the Viennese Westbahnhof railway station.

The 24-year-old brother of the stabber is also accused. He was the one who gave the knife to the main defendant. “I had no idea that my brother is going to kill someone with my knife”, he defended himself in the court. The 25-year-old committer comes from a respectable family background. He made matriculation and studied at the university. Now a punishment of 20 years in prison is possible. The trial was adjourned.
