Torture murder trial resumes

Prison? Or psychiatric care? This is an issue which must now be determined as the trial against the 36-year-old man, who brutally killed his partner in Näsby, continues on Tuesday.
The National Board of Health and Welfare's legal counsel has now presented its statement on the matter.

On the night of 9 December last year, 29-year-old Aida was tortured to death by her partner in a student apartment in Näsby.

Later, the 36-year-old man handed himself into the police and said he had killed her. When they arrived at the scene, they found the lifeless woman in bed.


The events that led to the murder were both prolonged and ruthless according to the investigation and the prosecutor’s description of the incident.

When the trial began in spring, the 36-year-old explained through his lawyer that he agreed with the prosecutor’s version of events on how the murder unfolded.

He had strangled his girlfriend. Before that he had tortured her; tied her to the bed and sat on her.

The trial was paused in June, pending another assessment. Previously, a forensic psychiatric report concluded that the 36-year-old committed the murder while experiencing a severe mental health break. However, the court also wanted the National Board of Health and Welfare’s legal counsel to make a statement on certain legal, social and medical issues regarding their position on the assessment.
