One was attacked – suspected of murder

A man in his 20s stepped in when another, older man, attacked a woman. The older man died and the younger man is now in custody on suspicion of murder.
The man denies murder and claimed during the detention hearing that he acted in self-defence.

– A painful story, says Leif GW Persson.

It all started with a fight where a man has hit a woman, and in connection with this, a third person intervenes and causes the man injuries that cause him to die on the spot.

The perpetrator’s background speaks against him

– It cannot be ruled out that it was an emergency measure, but I don’t think he will be released,” says Leif GW. The younger man has a history of violent behavior which may speak against him according to Leif GW Persson. Regardless of background, you have the right to invoke emergency protection, but in this case I don’t think it will end there, says GW.

Facts: Causing the death of another

Causing the death of another is a crime which means that someone caused a person’s death through negligence.

Anyone convicted of a crime of the normal degree is sentenced to imprisonment for a maximum of two years or, if the crime is judged to be minor, to a fine.

For serious crimes, imprisonment for between six months and six years applies.

When assessing whether the crime is to be regarded as serious, special consideration must be given to whether the act has involved a deliberate risk-taking of a serious nature or whether the perpetrator has been under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or has otherwise been guilty of serious negligence.
