The trial of Afghani asylum seeker Hussein K., the suspected murderer of German student Maria Ladenburger, has begun with Hussein admitting that he is actually an adult, not a minor.
Maria Ladenburger was found dead last October in a river in the town of Freiburg after being raped. Police later arrested Afghani asylum seeker Hussein K. who claimed to be 17 at the time but has now admitted that he was sat least 18 when he arrived in Germany in 2015, Die Welt reports.
Prosecutors in the case believe that Hussein may be even older than he has admitted saying he could be at least 22-years-old. The alleged murderer’s age has been the subject of dispute as he came to Germany without any identification or travel documents.

The case made international headlines and sparked new debate on the migrant crisis amongst ordinary Germans. Members of the public lined up for two hours before the opening of the court on Tuesday to witness the trial for themselves.
