Mass murderer hopes to overturn convictions

Convicted Swedish serial killer Thomas Quick, who now goes by the name of Sture Bergwall, is in court in a bid to overturn two more murders which he was convicted for in the 1990's.

Last autumn Quick had two of the eight murders he was convicted of overturned in court, Yenon Levi, a tourist from Israel in Rörshyttan in 1988 and Therese Johannesen in Drammen in the same year.

Quick is now in court to overturn the murder convictions for Trine Jensen in Oslo 1981, and Gry Storvik in Oslo 1985.

Sentenced to prison in 1991 for a number of armed robberies, Quick confessed to more than 30 murders across the Nordic countries in the 80's and 90's and was convicted of eight of them, despite no forensic evidence and complaints that he never killed anyone and was a compulsive liar.

Since 2008 Quick drew back his confessions, saying he was heavily medicated at the time and denied taking part in any of the murders for which he was convicted.
