Stureby Murder Trial Resumes

Updated 19:25

The trial resumes today of two teenagers accused of murdering a 15 year old schoolgirl in the Stockholm area earlier this year.

Therese Johansson Rojo was found beaten and strangled in the Stockholm suburb of Stureby in June. The trial was adjourned only into its second day last Wednesday, after the main defendant, a 16 year old boy, was taken to hospital after suffering a panic attack shortly after giving evidence. The boy has pleaded guilty to manslaughter. His 16 year old girlfriend accused of incitement to murder, denies any responsibilty.

The hearing of the girlfriend will continue on Wednesday. After that about 20 other witnesses will be heard, mainly friends of the three teenagers.
