Sweden: Bosnian murders wife and 3 children

(Gothenburg) A 51-year-old Bosnian man has been charged with killing his three young children and their mother in Gothenburg last Thursday. The woman, who was the 33-year-old partner of the suspect, and the couple's three children, aged two to eight, were found dead in their apartment on Thursday after neighbours reported a fire in the GÄrdstensbostÀder AB block.

Firemen who responded to the incident were shocked to find 4 murdered people inside. Investigators believe that the fire was likely an attempt to hide the father’s alleged actions. All four victims were found with “injuries to their bodies that are unrelated to the fire,” police press spokesperson Thomas Fuxborg on speaking to the media on Thursday morning. Swedish media outlets, including Aftonbladet and Expressen, have reported that all four victims had their throats cut, Aftonbladet also reported that the suspect is a Bosnian citizen.

The man’s attorney said that he denied all charges against him.
