Thiersheim (dpa / lby) – Because he is said to have killed his mother in Thiersheim in Upper Franconia (Wunsiedel district), a 20-year-old has been arrested. As the police and prosecutors announced on Monday, the man is said to have announced on Sunday afternoon via emergency call that he had killed his 54-year-old mother.
