AMSTERDAM — The Hague Court has sentenced a 40-year-old man to 17 years jail and psychiatric detention for the murder of his ex-girlfriend and attempted murder of her three children.
 
The three children survived the attack, in which they had their throats cut last year in Naaldwijk.

Witness statements indicated that the suspect, C. K. of The Hague, turned up at the woman's flat in the morning of 14 October.

He then slashed the throat of the woman's 12-year-old son, Mitchell, in a cellar and locked the dying boy in the room.

The defendant then went upstairs with the key he took from the youth and stabbed his ex-girlfriend several times in the chest and stomach.

He then cut the throats of the two small girls, one-year-old Ceren and two-year-old Cayda.

When police arrived at the scene, K. confessed the crimes. He said that his ex-girlfriend, Annemiek, had committed adultery.

K. had previously been convicted on two occasions for using violence against the 37-year-old woman.
