During the night of Tuesday, 14 november 2017, called the police and ambulance to Upplands Väsby, where a man was found dead in a storeroom. Later on Tuesday morning found yet another man dead in a property in the vicinity.
A man was arrested a few days later suspected of the murder of the two persons. A month later, the arrested man also for the two murders.
But the suspected man, who is now 40 years old, was acquitted in July last year by the Attunda district court. In the court's ruling, to read the evidence that the prosecutor relied on ”the overall is not so strong and robust that it can be considered to be set beyond a reasonable doubt” that the 40-year-old had killed the two persons.
Svea court of appeal is now against the district court's assessment. In a ruling on Thursday says the court of appeal determined that the 40-year-old is guilty of the murders.
the Penalty will be life imprisonment.
the parties presented the same evidence in the court of appeal in the district court. In addition, new witnesses have been held, and the 40-year-old has also had to answer the supplementary questions, as is shown by the decision of the court. In addition to this, also the prosecution relied on written evidence, including telefonanalyser and sms. A new investigation of the crime scene has also been carried out.
When it comes to one of the murder writing the district court that there is no technical evidence that the 40-year-old is the offender. The murder weapon has not been found. Therefore, witness testimony has been important to get to a conviction. A witness who states that he saw when the 40-year-old shot and killed mordoffret states that he initially submitted the incorrect information to the police because he was ”afraid for his and his family's safety”. When he then in a hearing one week afterwards confirmed that he had seen the assailants broke the man up and began to cry.
the Court of appeal deems that the witness is credible and that the data also gets strong support from two other people. In addition, the state court of appeal to the now sentenced the 40-year-old has been ' suspended in their duties” if the parts of the story and that a ”weight-of-evidence assessment and analysis” shows that the evidence is of such strength that it is beyond reasonable doubt that the 40-year-old has done the murder.
the murder of missing direct evidence that shows that the 40-year-old is the offender. An analysis from the National forensiskt centre shows that it is extremely likely that the same weapons that have been used in the two murders. It has also been found blood stains from the other mordoffret in the car as the 40-year-old was traveling in during the current night.
When it comes the traces of blood are parts of the court of appeal of the district court's assessment that it is not possible to draw any safe conclusion. But the court of appeal refers to the fact that it is proven that the 40-year-old has murdered the first man and the second victim was shot a short time afterwards with the same weapons, and that it is ”practically out of the question to any other person” with the same weapons may have shot the second victim.
