Child killer gets life sentence
A district court in Falun has sentenced a 43 year-old truckdriver to life in prison for two murders. Previously, the court had turned down the defending attorney’s plea for institutionalizing the accused on the grounds of temporary insanity. One of the murder victims was a ten-year-old girl whose killing in August of this year drew nationwide attention. In an unprecedented move Swedish national television reported live from the child’s funeral service.
