An appeals court has confirmed the guilty verdict in a recent notorious murder trial.

The 35-year-old man convicted of murdering teenager Lisa Holm will serve a lifetime sentence, which will probably amount to 25 years in practise. He will then be deported with no chance of return. He has Lithuanian citizenship.

Swedish Radio News reports it is unlikely that the verdict can be appealed any further.

The case of 17-year old Lisa Holm has made headlines in Sweden since she disappeared in June 2015, and DNA evidence linked her with the man who has now been sentenced for her murder.
