### Man Who Allegedly Killed Valeriia to Be Brought to Germany for Trial

Apologies have been issued by Chemnitz Police President Carsten Kaempf to Valeriia and her family due to the failure to apprehend the person responsible for her death. It seems that law enforcement officials have now fulfilled their promise, as a suspect was arrested by the Czech Police at a restaurant in Prague around 10:15 AM on a Friday.

36-Year-Old Man as the Suspect in Valeriia's Murder Case

According to recent reports, the suspect in question is a 36-year-old male. It was previously suggested that Valeriia's ex-boyfriend could be a potential suspect, as his phone was logged into a cell tower in Dobeln around the time of the crime and he was captured on surveillance camera footage. The Chemnitz Prosecutor's Office acknowledged these details but would not provide an official confirmation. They did, however, reveal that the investigation is focused on Valeriia's "social circle," which encompasses family, friends, and acquaintances.

A warrant for the suspect's arrest has been issued by the Chemnitz District Court, charging him with manslaughter. The Czech Police currently have the man in their custody. The Chemnitz Police Department made a public announcement, stating that "He is to be transferred to Germany for the execution of the criminal proceedings as soon as possible."

Valeriia, a nine-year-old girl, vanished after leaving for school on June 3rd but was never found. A search operation was conducted on the previous Tuesday, resulting in the discovery of her body in a secluded area close to her home in Dobeln. The shocking incident brought about widespread anger and concern (read also: "What We Still Don't Know About Valeriia's Murder").
