Court: Evidence against ex-boyfriend is "convincing"

The Court of Appeals believes that the evidence is convincing that Marina Johansson, who went missing in 2010, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, reports Swedish Radio News.

Both the district and appeals court had previously acquitted the ex-boyfriend, who is now 40, due to lack of evidence. However, he was put on trial again after the remains of Johansson's body were found in a forest not far from where she lived in April 2012, according to news agency TT.

The prosecutor has been pushing for the man to be sentenced to life in prison, however, the Appeals Court will subject the man to a psychiatric examination before deciding. The man has maintained that he is innocent.
