A man is under arrest in Germany after killing his wife in front of his six young children and cutting her into pieces.

Orhan Sircasi then ran on to the roof of his apartment building clutching her severed head in one hand and a butcher’s knife in the other.

The 32-year-old killer of Turkish origin fought off police as they tried to seize him early this morning by lunging at them with the knife and swinging the head like a club.

‘They were in a terrible state,’ said a neighbour. ‘He made them watch as he butchered their mother then cut her up into little pieces.’

Neighbours alerted police in the early hours of the morning after they heard screaming coming from the flat. It is unclear what caused the fatal row.

The children have been put under psychiatric observation as their father was charged with murder.

Stunned neighbours of the man in Koethener Strasse, in the working class Kreuzberg district of Berlin, covered the head with a blue plastic bag until police retrieved it.

Media reported that the man was often violent towards his wife, beating and kicking her if she displeased him, especially after he had been drinking.

Blood spots were seen outside the flats near the Potsdamer Platz.

One neighbour was quoted by Tages Spiegel as saying: ‘I can’t get the sound out of my head.’

The suspect is thought to be known to police for various offences including negligence, and traffic and drug offences.

He is due before the courts tomorrow.
