Man charged over Vannäs death

A man has been charged with the murder of a 20-year-old woman.

She was found dead on Friday, in a house in Vännäs, near the northern city of Umeå.

Västerbotten county police are not sure how the woman died, but are proceeding with a murder investigation since the circumstances around her death are unclear.

The man was interviewed on Friday afternoon, and then formally charged. In Swedish law a formal charge occurs relatively late in a murder investigation, which usually sees people arrested and held merely on suspicion of a crime.
The police have interviewed witnesses during the night.
