A 32-year-old mother was sentenced to life in prison in Bern for the murder of her 8-year-old daughter in February 2022.

A 32-year-old mother was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday in Bern for the murder of her daughter. The Bern-Mittelland Court ruled that it was indeed she, despite her denials, who had killed the girl, then aged 8, in February 2022.

The body was found in a forest in the Köniz mountain, on the outskirts of the capital. The mother was convicted on the basis of a body of evidence. According to the judges, the accused lied in court.

The defense pleaded for acquittal, and the prosecution requested life imprisonment. When the verdict was announced, the mother burst into tears.

A stone was found at the crime scene, the shape of which matched the victim’s head injuries. Blood stains and the girl’s hair were also found on the stone. Traces of the mother’s DNA also proved damning.

In addition, a witness, aged twelve at the time, had seen the little girl and her mother go to the forest where the crime was committed, shortly before the events. (jah/ats)

The National Alarm Center, CENAL, located on Place Guisan in Bern, looks like what you would imagine an alert center to be. Seven people sit in a semi-circle at their computers, facing a wall full of screens displaying various maps, numbers and lists. They wear vests of different colors — black for situational information, red for operations, blue for communication. There is absolute silence.
