Guilty verdict found in Sweden's second largest murder investigation

One of Sweden's biggest murder cases of the last two decades ended on Thursday when a 37-year-old man was found guilty by a court in Linköping of the stabbing of an 8 year old boy and a middle aged woman in broad daylight in the city 16 years ago.

He had admitted to the double murder in June this year when the results of DNA evidence sent by the police to a commercial family history database in the U.S. led to his arrest.

The court today found him guilty of two counts of murder and sentenced him to serve an undetermined sentence at a secure psychiatric hospital after he was judged to have been suffering a serious psychiatric disorder at the time of the killings in 2004.
