0:55 min

The 42-year-old woman found guilty of arranging the murder of her father and killing her husband has been sentenced to life in prison.

The woman’s ex-boyfriend who assisted in the murder of her father and attempted murder of her mother was sentenced to 14 years in prison.

The woman is convicted of murdering her husband in 2015 after taking out a SEK 2 million life insurance policy in his name. She and her ex-boyfriend have also been convicted in the murder of her father and attempted murder of her mother in 2016.

"It is good that there is now a ruling - good for the plaintiffs that they no longer need to live in uncertainty," said prosecutor Jessica Wenna.  

These murders all took place at the family’s summer cabin on Lake Hjälmaren, Arboga.

The woman has denied being in involved of either of the murders. Her ex-boyfriend has admitted to killing her father and stabbing her mother, but claims that she told him to do it and gave him the knife.

The woman and her ex-boyfriend have both undergone psychiatric evaluations and neither were deemed mental disturbed.

The ex-boyfriend will also be deported, and banned from coming back to Sweden.
