A Denmark Priest has been given a 15year jail term for killing his own wife and dissolving her body in acid according to the New York Post.
The priest, Thomas Gotthard who is 44years admitted to the heinous crime on Tuesday August 3, 2021 that, he killed his wife, Maria who was 43year amid marital infidelity issues after he fell in love with another woman.
“I killed Maria, I ended her life. I am guilty of having lied and deceived you all. I’ve been a total thug. I have sent my life out into the darkness where I want to stay. No one should feel sorry for me” he boldly stated.
Prosecutor Anne Mette Seerup said the story is really a sad one as Thomas couldn’t get the love of his life.
“This is not an unhappy love story about a man who could not get the love of his life, or the third love of his life. On the contrary, this is a man who saw his wife as block and chain around his leg”
Maria was reported missing in October by her sister. Thomas told investigators that time she had left their home in Frederikssund while she was depressed. She left behind her phone, laptop and her credit card.
Thomas was suspended as a priest and later charged with murder in after investigators found hydrochloric acid and caustic soda in the couple’s home.
