“He died shortly after,” the chargesheet said.

– For the next of kin, murder is a big strain. Legal aid lawyer Olav Ramel Holland tells Dogbladet that they believe the defendant can be held responsible for the killer stabbing and that it would be a fair punishment.

Two weeks have been set aside for the trial against the woman, which will begin on August 21 at the Oslo District Court.

– The Attorney General has ordered the charge sheet. This was taken because we assessed the conditions for criminal responsibility for murder, and we consider that it can be proven in court, public prosecutor Johan Moldestad tells Dagbladet.
