Accused brothers speak out on "Kevin" case

The two brothers at the centre of a re-opened child murder case have spoken out about how a TV investigation into how they were treated by the police has given them a sense of relief.

Christian Karlsson was 7-years-old, and his brother Robin Dahlén was 5, when they were accused of killing a 4-year-old boy, Kevin Skog.

An investigative TV journalism team has now raised questions about how the case was handled and that the guilt of the two brothers needs to be re-examined.

The two boys were interviewed by police without a parent or lawyer present on over 30 occasions. Their lawyer said that the normal procedures have not been followed at a press conference on Friday. He wants the brothers to be taken out of the new investigation, and then it is time to talk about seeking compensation.

At the press conference, the brothers' father said that they had sought to have the case re-opened, but the police officer in charge had refused.
