A negligent homicide verdict for Oliver Dietmann, a 46-year-old salesman accused of killing his girlfriend with a cucumber, is expected Friday. As if the sordid details of this woman’s death can’t get any worse, Dietmann will only serve 5 years if he is found guilty of the crime.
Dietmann’s lover, 46-year-old Rica Varna, was found unconscious with a cucumber in her mouth after a bedroom incident between the couple went awry. Dietmann has admitted to the authorities that he would frequently use vegetables as sex toys in the bedroom with his lover. After four bottles of wine and a few glasses of Schnapps each, Dietmann used the cucumber to pleasure Rica two years ago. Her autopsy showed that she was more than four times beyond the intoxication limit for driving.
He told the court how the cucumber was used during their drunken tryst, saying, “I put it in her mouth. But suddenly I saw there was smoke coming from the kitchen. I forgot that I had put a piece of meat on the stove for my dog. I ran to the kitchen, fed my dog and then went on to the balcony to smoke a cigarette.”
He said when he returned to the bedroom, Rica was unconscious. Dietmann said he tried his best to remove all the pieces of cucumber from the woman’s mouth, but he struggled because the vegetable had gotten mushy.
The cucumber eventually lodged in Rica’s throat, cutting of her air supply and plunging her into an irreversible coma. The woman’s death is blamed on Dietmann, as the courts say he should not have left Rica alone for so long while she was extremely intoxicated with a large vegetable crammed down her throat.
It looks like people all over the world are getting dumber. It shouldn’t take a genius to figure out that a drunk woman with a cucumber stuck in her mouth could die.
