Not Guilty in Controversial Teen Slaying

A Swedish court has found a 50 year old man not guilty of murder or attempted murder after he shot a 15 year old boy to death and wounded another teen with his shotgun.

The District Court in Blekinge in southern Sweden found that the man’s mental condition at the time was such that he lacked the ability to weigh his actions or their consequences.

The shootings came when a gang of teenagers went to the man’s house in Rödeby in the middle of the night last October, following telephone threats against the family’s 19 year old son. The family had long claimed that they were harassed by the gang, without any intervention by the local police.

In a separate case recently, four of the teens, including the 17 year old who was wounded, were sentenced to juvenile detention, for disturbing the peace, illegal threats, trespass and public drunkenness.
