Man Admits to Dismembering Girlfriend

Police found the bags contained the woman's dismembered body in Lake Yngern

A Swedish man has admitted to murdering and dismembering his girlfriend and then trying to dump her body in an ice-covered lake, two months after the couple moved back from Australia with their two children.

The 31-year-old man was arrested Tuesday, hours after a witness told police he spotted him cutting a hole in the ice of Lake Yngern south of Stockholm and dumping plastic bags into the water.

Police later found the bags contained the 38-year-woman’s dismembered body.

A police spokesman said the man quickly confessed to the crime during questioning.

Prosecutor Cecilia Cassmer told the news agency TT that the man hit his girlfriend in the head with a frying pan after she threatened to leave him and move with their two children to Finland. He then killed her with a knife.

The couple’s two children, 3 and 1, have been placed in the custody of social services.
