Astiz sentenced to life in prison for Hagelin murder

Alfredo Astiz was sentenced Wednesday by an Argentine court to life in prison after being found guilty of kidnapping and murdering Swede, Dagmar Hagelin in August of 1977.

The 59-year-old Astiz was earlier convicted in his absence in France for the murder of two nuns during the Argentine military dictatorship between 1976 and 1983.

Besides Astiz, 11 more former military personnel and police were convicted for crimes against humanity.
