Lack of DNA Creates Setback for Arboga Prosecutors

It emerged Wednesday afternoon that there is no DNA evidence connecting the 32-year-old female suspect charged with the murder of two toddlers and the attempted murder of their mother in Arboga.

Until now, much of the prosecutor’s evidence has hinged on DNA evidence connecting her to the crime scene.

Prosecutors had hoped that cat hairs found on the suspect’s clothes belonged to the victims’ cats, thus providing firm evidence that the suspect was in the family’s home.

However, DNA evidence has now established that these are different cat hairs.

Speaking to newspaper Dagens Nyheter, prosecutor Frieda Gummesson said that there was plenty of other evidence against the suspect and that she would present this during the trial.
