Second arrest in Malmö murder

Malmö District Court has confirmed the arrest of a second woman in connection with the murder of a 48-year-old man there in January.

The prosecutor wanted to charge the 55-year-old woman with conspiracy to commit murder, but the court reduced the charge to preparation to aid a murder. On Thursday her 28-year-old daughter was arrested on suspicion of committing the murder itself.

             

Police and prosecutors say they believe the 48-year-old was not the intended victim, however, and that the two planned to kill a man with a criminal record who lived on the same street.
