Oliver Dietmann, 46, a German salesman could be jailed for 5 years for negligent homicide in Germany for the death of his lover Rica Varna, also 46. He told the court he and his lover often used
vegetables as a substitute for sex toys.
On July 19 2014 he invited her around to his place where the cucumber was used to pleasure her. He admitted that they had drunk four bottles of wine and several glasses of schnapps. He told the court how after the cucumber had served its purpose, he it in her mouth.
He said: “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, I tried to get the cucumber pieces out of her mouth, but they were so mushy I couldn’t get any purchase at all.” .
Medical experts later said that the cucumber got wedged in her throat, cut off her air supply and plunged her into a coma. Prosecutor Reinhard Hoffmann, said Dietmann must have known that he should not have left her for so long on her own. A verdict in the case is due tomorrow.
