Double Murder Trial Starts

The trial of Anders Eklund, who is charged with the murder and rape of 11-year-old Engla Juncosa Höglund and 31-year-old Pernilla Hellgren, started on Monday in Stockholm’s district court.

Both the Swedish media interest and public interest is extremely high, so the trial is being held in a special security court room.

Monday’s proceedings focus completely on the murder of Pernilla Hellgren which took place in Falun in 2000. Her murder went unsolved for eight years until the murder of 11-year-old Engla Juncosa Höglund in April this year established a connection to 42-year-old Eklund.

Both the Swedish media interest and public interest is extremely high, so the trial is being held in a special security court room.

Eklund is also charged with possession of child pornography.
