Leaks from the Bonn investigation into the tragic murder of Kate de Marcken reveal that the suspect has confessed to digging a forest grave for her during the summer. Kate’s husband, a Beethoven Orchestra cellist named as Sergey K, is being held in connection with the murder.

The couple had quarreled over their son’s education and, according to some sources, had separated. The defendant’s lawyer denies premeditated murder. He says: ‘This is a tragic interpersonal conflict that culminated in this act.’
