Suspected family murder Geldermalsen still dies days after suicide attempt NOW

The forty-year-old man suspected of double murder and arson in a family killing in Geldermalsen on Monday, died on Sunday. This is reported by the Public Prosecution Service (OM). The suspect was seriously injured after attempting to commit suicide on Thursday.

Due to his death, criminal prosecution is no longer possible, reports the Public Prosecution Service.

The man was arrested in Germany during the night from Monday to Tuesday for his involvement in a house fire, which probably took place in a family murder. The forty-year-old man is said to have started the fire and stabbed his wife and six-year-old son to death.

Pending his surrender to the Netherlands, the man appeared in court in Paderborn last Wednesday. He was subsequently detained pending surrender. On Thursday, he was found in his cell after attempting suicide.

The Public Prosecution Service said to the Gelderlander to investigate how this could have happened.
