A new witness appeared yesterday as the court prepared to announce a verdict in the trial of Michael Peters and Lars Christiansen, two young Germans accused of the arson murders of three Turks. Heiko Meinke, 25, was arrested for drink-driving on Friday and told police he was present at the attack in Molln last year, but yesterday denied the alleged confession.
