Horst Koenig admitted to hitting his wife on the head using a hammer and cutting her into 8 pieces so that he could freely go and see the woman he's been chatting with online in Thailand.
"What she promised seemed exciting, and many of my secret desires seemed to come true. I wanted to be with this woman," he told the court, pertaining to the Thai woman.
The 53-year-old German confessed to killing his wife of ten years, who was later identified as Grace, in front of the Augburg State Court in Bavaria.
He knew that he had to get rid of his Filipina wife in order to be with the Thai Woman, Koenig even said Grace, "would have to be out of the way".
Koenig went online in search of his query on "how to kill a person with a single blow to the head", according to Coconuts Bangkok.
The murder occurred on November 28, 2015 when Koenig killed his wife by hitting her in the head with a hammer while she was asleep. He suffocated her with a plastic bag then cut her up into 8 pieces and put her remains in garbage bags which he left on a rented warehouse.
Koenig tried to cover his tracks by accessing his wife's account before flying to Thailand on December 2, 2015. Although he made it to Thailand and stayed there for three weeks, he was arrested upon his return to Germany by police contacted by Grace's relatives.
