Murder suspect dropped against Schalke fan

A supporter of the football league FC Schalke 04 does not have to answer for attempted murder after the riots at the Champions League game against Manchester City.

The court of Essen sees with the accused “insufficient evidence that he acted with intent to kill. The fact that his fist was dangerous was not sufficient for such an assumption,”said a statement.

The prosecution had legally assessed in the indictment the alleged act of the accused as attempted murder, the acts of the other two men involved as dangerous bodily harm. Now all three must answer for dangerous bodily harm. Negotiation dates are not yet set.

At the Champions League game on 20. In February, a city fan had been severely injured in the head and had been in mortal danger for several weeks. The arrest warrant against the accused, who was the only one in custody, was suspended by the Criminal Chamber against terms and conditions.
