The pregnant Polish woman who was hacked to death with a meat cleaver by a Syrian refugee in the German town of Reutlingen was a mother-of-four who came to the country after her divorce.

Identified only as Jolanta K., 45, she was killed on Sunday by the 21-year-old, who reportedly fell in love with her after visiting the kebab shop where she worked.

Jolanta came from the north-eastern Polish town of Dabrowa Tarnowska and had lived in Germany for a year, according to the Polish press. She left her hometown after a divorce.

She worked as a cleaner and shared a flat with a new friend. Three months before the fatal attack, she found a full-time job in a kitchen at the Mangal Kebab fast food store.

Jolanta left her four children aged eight, 19, 22 and 23 in Poland.


The youngest daughter was supposed to join her mother to live in Germany soon. On the day she was killed, Jolanta had just arrived back from a visit to her homeland.

According to local media, Jolanta almost managed to escape the attack.

The attacker, identified only by his first name Muhamed, knew Jolanta from Mangal Kebab and fell in love with her, according to local media.

Jolanta is said to have rejected him, and the other restaurant employees used to force him to leave the place and locked him out because he was ‘weird’.

Her children have arrived in Reutlingen to identify their mother’s body.
