"the district Court: ”Completely distraction force”"
"the Day before she was murdered talked to Emma Tikka on the phone with her mother. In one year she had lived in a relationship, lined with rough abuse, jealousy and control."
"She hoped that the man she loved would change. Instead, murdered her with a träningsstång. "
"– She is always in my thoughts. You want to turn the clock back, " says Ritva Tikka. "
"Emma Tikka is one of the approximately 13 Swedish women each year are killed by men they have a relationship with. "
"She was only 33 years old. In the summer of 2017, she met Yusuf Shirar Hussein, 35, and fell in love. Both lived in Kortedala in Gothenburg, as well as Emma's parents. "
"– In the beginning she did not want to say that they met, perhaps because she knows I don't like that sort of thing. I was told that he had been violent towards the other but then, he had not been there for her, " says Emma's mother Ritva Tikka."
"– I said to her: you absolutely should not meet such a person, how can you know that he does not do so to you?"
"Ritva has just come home from a trip to Denmark with her grandchild, Emma's son. The same journey they did almost exactly a year ago. When was Emma. "
"– She is always in my thoughts. You want to turn the clock back and think what could be done differently. But we did the most we could, we applied to the police, we told her to leave him. "
"”He who would love me”"
"in the Autumn of 2017, he beat her for the first time. Ritva remembered how Emma came home to them then. "
" She was very, very touched, did not think it could be done. She stood in the hall and said to me: ”mom, can you believe that he hit me, he said he will love me”. "
"the Day after, he called and regretted what he had done. Promised that it would never happen again."
"But when Emma went back to Yusuf took it again. Time after time she talked to his friends about his violent behavior. In a text message to a friend she wrote: ”Yes, he will be my death if I continue”. "
"the Battles came not only when they were alone. Had the visit and she looked at Yusufs friends in a way he liked, he could beat her in front of them, witnesses told in the interviews. Did she in the phone with his children, he could accuse her of talking with a lover. "
"In February 2018 left Emma to her son at the home of the parents. On the way home she met some friends and was late home. Yusuf called home to her parents: where is she?"
"When he met up with Emma on the way home he beat her, took her keys and atm and went home to her apartment, and broke things in anger. "
"She did, in the end, this time for good, was hoping her parents. "
"– The three months when she was not with him was so wonderful. We were like a family again. She was calm and happy and present, " says Ritva. "
"Exactly when they are beginning to be seen again don't know Ritva. Maybe in June 2018. He has promised to change, again. He beats her, again. "
"– She said to me that everything will be fine. But I noticed after a few weeks she had been beaten again. She dared not say it to me but I saw it in her eyes, " says Ritva. "
"In the beginning of August is an event that will be reported. Yusuf beat up and stab Emma in the thigh on the bus on the way to Hjällbo. Emma would like to either report it to the police or seek medical care, but her family is worried. They force her to go to the East of the hospital, they are scared that she had received a concussion from the beatings."
"the Boyfriend: ”masked men”"
"the Last time Emma sees her mother is the Friday before she is murdered. She is nervous, do not want to stay long and says she is going home to Yusuf. Instead of sleeping, she is over at a friend's. "
"– On Saturday morning called Emma. She said that they had a fight on the phone the night before, he was completely mad but he calmed down now. She wanted to go to him to retrieve his work clothes and his bag. I tried to call her during the day but heard nothing more until the police came and told her what had happened on Sunday morning, " says Ritva. "
"When the police find Emma on Sunday she has several injuries on his body. Yusuf has used a chinsstång, a piece of equipment that usually sits in a door frame so you can pull upward, in order to beat Emma. He dials 112 and ask a neighbor for help. To SOS, he says that it is the masked men broken into and assaulted his girlfriend. "
"the Beating with the träningsstången do that Emma may revbensbrott, revbensbrottet punkterar her lung and causing her death."
"”Completely to distraction violence,” wrote the court in its judgment when Yusuf in the week was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder, ill-treatment, rough fridskränkning, unlawful threat, call theft and minor drug offences. That damage must have occurred to Yusuf did cpr on Emma purchase is not the district court. "
"Ritva Tikka is satisfied with the verdict and that he should be expelled, but the grief after her daughter is great."
"– It's so sad that it is not wise. It becomes like a black hole, you see no point in it somewhere, " she says. "
