The condemned man, a German born in 1908, had had a life of crime, resulting in prison sentences for armed robbery and assault. In 1937 he resorted to kidnapping for ransom, and abducted an American dancing instructor, Jean de Koven. His plan misfired and he murdered his victim, burying her body beneath the steps of a villa in La Voulze, where it remained undiscovered for over four months.

Shortly afterwards, he murdered five other people, four men and a woman, and, when cornered by the police, attempted to shoot them also. At his trial, overwhelming evidence was produced, including the yard-long length of soiled cloth he had forced down the throat of Jean de Koven, and the verdict of the court was a foregone conclusion: death by the guillotine.
