Paedophile Who Stabbed Six-Year-Old Girl To Death Then Sexually Abused Her Corpse Jailed In Germany

A paedophile who murdered a six-year-old girl on a sleepover and sexually abused her corpse before blowing the house up in an attempt to hide his sickening crime has been jailed for life. 

Sven Messner, 34, had invited the girl to a play date at his home in Baden-Baden, southern Germany, after she had become friends with his son Leon, also six, at a local park.

Victim Shaki's mother reluctantly agreed to send her on the play date. It was the last time she would see her daughter alive, the court heard.
