59-year-old Siegfried Richter’s lover told police, after they arrived at the residence on China Grove Aly in Antioch, that he was drinking before he became irate with her earlier in the night of August 26th. Siegfried’s girlfriend, Esthelle Beck, also told police that he started breaking furniture in the house, and she locked herself in a bedroom. She said that Siegfried made suicidal and homicidal comments towards himself and her. After he grabbed a knife, he continued making comments and then attempted to break down the door to the bedroom Esthelle was in by kicking and stabbing it. Police noticed the destroyed furniture as well as the kitchen knife in the door. Siegfried refused to speak to the police about the situation and would not cooperate with them. He was determined as the primary aggressor and arrested for domestic assault.
Siegfried A. Richter was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 27th, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $8,000.
