Fossmo’s lawyer, Peter Althin, last week handed in a formal request for a new investigation to the prosecutor’s office in Uppsala. Fossmo said he had information that indicated that Åsa Waldau, a senior sect member known as the Bride of Christ, was involved in the crimes.
Deputy Chief Prosecutor Gunilla Strömblad rejected the application on Wednesday, according to Uppsala Nya Tidning.
Fossmo was sentenced to life imprisonment for conspiracy to murder and attempted murder. He had sent text messages to nanny Sara Svensson to encourage her to murder his wife and his neighbour, who was married to his lover.
Svensson was committed to a secure mental hospital after being found guilty of murder and attempted murder.
