The 17 year old son in the family which is being held on suspicion of killing a 20 year old man in Högsby, in Småland, has confessed to the murder, according to media reports.

The news was confirmed by the prosecutor dealing with the case, Kjell Yngvesson.

"Yes, he admits that he did it," said Yngvesson to TT.

Despite the admission, the prosecutor requested on Tuesday morning that all four family members - the 17 year old, his 16 year old sister and their mother and father - be charged with murder.
