Swede sentenced to life in Thailand

A Swedish man, 28, has been sentenced to lifetime in prison in Thailand for the murder of a man in Phuket, several media outlets report. Another Swedes was also convicted of murder in the same case in January this year. He, too, received a lifetime prison sentence.

In August 2011, a Swedish man, 25, was stabbed and killed during a fight, apparently over a business dispute. The three Swedes involved had run a telephone service company together.

Both convicted men said the killing was an accident.
