A 57-year-old woman admitted in a German court on Monday to having killed her partner with boiling water so as to “teach him a lesson” because of an alleged affair.
The woman acted out of jealousy when she doused her partner with boiling water one night in the bedroom.
The 47-year-old man died a few days later as a result of the burns he suffered in the incident, which affected about 70 per cent of his body.
The judge said the court should examine whether the defendant required psychiatric care.
The verdict is expected to be announced on July 31.
