No Retrial Of Arboga Case

The Swedish court of appeal has rejected an application for a retrial of the Arboga murder case, named after the village in Sweden where two small children were murdered and their mother seriously injured back in March.

A German woman accused of the murders and attempted murder is currently undergoing pyschiatric assessment before an official verdict is reached.

That verdict is expected to be a guilty one after the orginal court ruled that there was convincing evidence the accused was guilty.

A retrial had been called for because of comments made by a lay-judge to the media after the trial, which opened to question her impartiality.

Friday’s appeal court decision uphold’s an earlier ruling by Västmanland district court that there was no need for a retrial.
