A 50-year-old Swiss man who was convicted of murdering his wife in the first instance died before the appeals process at the Zurich High Court. The procedure is therefore discontinued.

For the Supreme Court, the death of the alleged murderer is an “insurmountable procedural obstacle” that prevents a verdict from being reached, as the Supreme Court writes in its recently published decision. It also decided that the deceased or his heirs would not receive two million francs in compensation and satisfaction from the state.
