Doctor who killed lover by sprinkling cocaine on penis told to pay for funeral

A surgeon who sprinkled cocaine on his penis before having sex with his lover has now been ordered to pay for her funeral costs after she died of an overdose.

Doctor Andreas David Niederbichler was jailed for nine years for aggravated rape and grievous bodily harm leading to death, after his lover, Yvonne M, died from the drug.

The 38-year-old's husband and son have since pursued a civil case against the doctor three years after her death.

A court in Magdeburg, Germany, has ruled that he should pay towards her funeral as well as a sum of money to her family as financial compensation.

Dr Niederbichler, dubbed the German Christian Grey because of his perverted sexual fantasies, has been told he must pay £24,457 to the family, with £8,581 allocated to both her husband and son. A further £7,337 will also be paid for the funeral.

The former head physician at the Halberstadt Clinic in Saxony-Anhalt drugged an sexually assaulted three other women between September 2015 and February 2018, it was heard at the time.

He secretly put cocaine in their lipstick, toothpaste and champagne glasses to make them more sexually compliant, according to prosecutors in the trial.

The surgeon was charged over Yvonne's death in February 2018, after the hairdresser died of an overdose. He had secretly placed the drug on his private parts during sex.

According to reports she became short of breath afterwards and collapsed.
