A step-dad is on trial for allegedly giving crystal meth to a two-year-old before he sexually abused and then beat him to death.
Dennis Kunert, 30, allegedly gave the young victim a dose of crystal meth five times higher than would have been safe for an adult.
It is claimed he then sexually abused the two-year-old toddler over several days, which he also filmed.
Kunert, who has pleaded not guilty, allegedly then beat the baby to death to cover up the sexual abuse in a killing that reportedly occurred at the family home in the town of Querfurt, Germany.
The child's mum, identified only as Uta F, 36, has been accused in connection with the incident for doing nothing to prevent the abuse.
According to reports, Uta cried as she was brought into the dock and claimed she had not realised what Kunert, her partner, had done to the child.
A court heard Uta, who has pleaded not guilty, only met the man a few months previously and said Kunert "beat the child continuously until it was no longer moving and showed no signs of life".
It is alleged Kunert then placed the toddler's body in its crib and left it there for Uta to find.
Prosecutor Hendrik Weber said he two-year-old was found the next day by Uta who immediately called the police.
Mr Weber described Kunert's alleged attack as "excessively brutal" and told the court the motive was pure sadism with a desire to carry out sexual abuse on a child.
He said a post mortem found the child had suffered massive head and internal injuries, including broken ribs.

Police told the court Kunert was found laying passed out on the bed still sleeping off the alcohol he drank the previous day.
German reporter, Frank Vacik, who has worked for RTL for a decade wrote: "I have never seen such a shocking charge sheet. I was really horrified by the contents.
"Such perverse fantasies as detailed here cannot even be imagined. What this little boy must have gone through is simply not comprehensible."
