Sweden's most notorious serial killer, Thomas Quick, was officially acquitted of the murder of Yenon Levi, a 24-year-old Israeli tourist who was found dead in 1988. The decision was expected after chief prosecutor, Eva Finne decided to drop the case in May because there wasn't enough technical evidence to convict Quick.
He will also be reimbursed for costs related to the legal proceedings, around 330,000 dollars.
Quick, who today uses the name Sture Bergwall, has been convicted of eight murders and most of the convictions have been based on his own confessions. He recently retracted all his confession and together with his lawyer he now plans to appeal the remaining seven murder convictions.
