Suspect of Weideveen double murder brought to trial. ‘A terrible drama’

Richard K., the suspect of the double murder in Weiteveen, will be arraigned today.

He will be told whether he will remain in pre-trial detention for another two weeks. The residents of the Drenthese village, where fewer than two thousand people live, are still in shock, says RTV Drenthe reporter Rien Kort in Goedemorgen Nederland on NPO 1.

“You notice that everyone is still really recovering. Don’t forget what a terrible drama is going on here. Because not only the victims have children, but also the suspect and his wife. Part of the village is wondering what to do next,” says Kort.

Last Tuesday, Richard K. is said to have shot dead a 38-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman after a long conflict over the sale of a house. One of the victims was found in a car, the other near a house. Shortly afterwards, the police arrested the suspect from Klazienaveen.

After the incident, a video emerged on social media in which a man says that “something very bad has happened” and that he will “go to jail for the rest of his life.” A video also circulated in which a woman says that her husband has “completely lost his mind”.

‘Son present at fatal Weiteveen shooting’

Their 12-year-old son was also present at the murder of the 38-year-old man and 44-year-old woman, who lived in Velsen-Zuid until last year. This is evident from research by the AD. It is not yet clear what exactly the son received. The couple moved to Richard K.’s house in Drenthe more than a year ago. A conflict arose between the couple and K., which ended in a bloodbath.

The shooting took place on Tuesday morning in the Drenthe village of Weiteveen. The couple died as a result. According to the AD, Richard K. first surrounded the woman with the car, after which he shot her dead. He then allegedly went to the parental home, where the 12-year-old son answered the door. Richard K. is said to have stabbed and shot the father. The sources told AD that it was a ‘horror’ and an ‘unprecedented explosion of violence’.

After the shooting, a video emerged online in which a man said he ‘did something very bad’. He said he had been threatened by the couple.

It is still unclear exactly what the 12-year-old boy, who lived and played football in Velsen-Zuid until last year, saw. The police are investigating the circumstances.
