The Church of Sweden pastor, his wife, and another male acquaintance assembled in June for a meal and drinks. After the meal, the three then moved to the sauna, at which point they began to engage in a series of sex games.
According to court documents, the pastor became enraged when his wife began erasing pictures of the threesome’s deeds which had been taken using a mobile telephone camera.
The minister is said to have then attacked his wife by slamming her head into a wall and putting his hands around her throat.
The pastor maintains he committed no crime.
He risks losing both his title and his job within the parish because of the incident.
