CRIME

Man accused of raping 92-year-old woman

A 57-year-old man has been charged with raping a 92-year-old-woman in Uppsala earlier this year.

Uppsala District Court also charged the man with sexually molesting four other elderly women in their homes in the period from 2003 to 2006.

But police believe that the suspect may have committed many more crimes of a similar nature. The families of a large number of women, all over the age of 85, have reported that an unknown man had been paying to the women’s homes in the eastern Swedish city.

The man was arrested outside Stockholm and taken into custody at the end of October.

The suspect came into contact with the women while out walking or cycling. He told police that he got a sexual kick from seeking out older women.

“According to his own description, he first finds out where the women live. He then rings on the women’s doorbells after a few weeks or months and says he wants to check the radiators,” said police spokeswoman Anne Sjöblom.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

The former politician has been charged on suspicion of murdering his colleague in an apartment south of Stockholm, after police found body parts in three different locations in the capital.

Sweden Democrat politician charged for dismembering colleague

According to the prosecution, the body parts found in plastic bags in central Stockholm came from a man in his 60s murdered in an apartment in Nyköping, south of Stockholm.

The man is said to have been killed by a pistol shot to the head, after which the 60-year-old charged with the murder dismembered the body.

The suspected murderer, who newspaper Expressen reports is a former Sweden Democrat politician, is said to have moved the body parts multiple times, eventually dumping them across the city.

In total, three body parts were found in two different locations – the Karlsberg canal and in the Djurgården park. Not all parts of the body have yet been found.

“We’ve carried out a comprehensive investigation into the victim and the suspect. We can, to some extent, show how and when the suspect moved the body parts,” prosecutor Marina Chirakova told TT.

The victim, who according to Expressen was also a former Sweden Democrat politician, had been friends with the suspected murderer for a number of years. Prosecutors did not comment on the motive behind the murder.

“That will be discussed in the main hearings,” she told TT.

The suspect was taken into custody in November last year after being arrested in Nyköping. He denies the charges, but accepts certain circumstances related to the case.

Upon his arrest, he resigned from his political obligations and his membership was frozen by the Sweden Democrats.

“I don’t want to comment on his stance on the charges or anything he has said,” she further told TT.

The murder is suspected to have taken place between August 30th and September 16th last year.
