The trial about the teacher murders in Malmö is now ending

He has confessed to the murders and the major forensic psychiatric examination he underwent while the trial was suspended shows that he did not commit the brutal act of violence under the influence of a serious mental disorder. Thus, he can be sentenced to prison.

Earlier during the trial, he has received repeated questions about why he attacked the two teachers. It has become clear that they were randomly selected victims.

“I wanted to signal that no one can love me,” said the 18-year-old when he was questioned in the courtroom at the end of July.

Didn’t seek help

The thoughts of committing an act were raised the day before the attack and what triggered them were changes in plans around his practice run and drive-up. This news made him very upset.

— I had wanted to kill myself for a long period, but I am far too afraid to do it on my own with the procedures I had in mind. I get the impression that I am going to put myself in a situation where there is no turning back, the 18-year-old said.

He never saw seeking help for his bad mood as an option.

— I wanted to complete the image of me being a monster.

The two teachers were assaulted after the end of the school day on March 21 on the school’s third floor. He himself had locked himself in a toilet and put on a scarf, mask and ear muffs to avoid seeing and hearing his victims so clearly.

Waited outside

When he heard someone go into the toilet next door, he stood outside the door and waited. When the female teacher came out of the toilet, she was attacked. Another teacher who witnessed the attack was then chased down the corridor before she too was assaulted. Afterwards, he called 112 himself.

The prosecutor Johanna Liljeblad did not want to comment in advance on what sentence she will ask for, but only stated that a murder can result in both a limited sentence and life in prison.
