MUNICH - A court in Germany Tuesday handed down a life imprisonment sentence against a 22-year-old Munich man who decapitated his mother with a Samurai sword - and claimed his father had done it.

The court said forensics evidence proved he, and not his father, had committed the murder in the headline-making case last June.

The Munich family's home had been the subject of repeated police raids in search of illicit drugs, prompting the couple to give their unemployed adult son an ultimatum either to get off drugs or to move out.

"Instead, you brutally killed your mother and schemed to have your father put away in prison so you could have the home all to yourself," the judge said in handing down sentence.
