24-year-old prison guard was murdered at work

Prison murderer not psychologically disturbed

The man suspected of murdering a guard at a prison outside of Stockholm on 3 October is not so psychologically disturbed that he must be committed to involuntary care, reports news agency TT.

That is the result of a psychiatric review of the man for an earlier crime he is suspected of having committed, an attempted murder in Södertalje this August.

"A new investigation can be needed if a suspect commits a new crime," says Fredrik Hedén, chief physician at the involuntary commitment psychiatric clinic in Huddinge. "Then it would be up to the district court to ask for an additional review."
