It was on October 8 last year that a man in his 40s attacked his ex-girlfriend, a woman in her 30s, in a parking lot in Katrineholm.

The woman survived and the man, who was internationally wanted, could be arrested less than a week later in Vingåker.

According to the indictment, the man allegedly attacked her with a knife and stabbed her in the neck and chest.

A forensic examination shows that the woman's injuries were not life-threatening, but the prosecutor claims that it was only due to temporary circumstances that she did not receive life-threatening injuries or died.

Previously convicted of crimes against the woman

The prosecutor claims attempted murder in the first place and aggravated assault in the second place.

The prosecutor also demands that the suspects be deported from Sweden without the right to return.

According to the indictment, the suspected man has previously subjected the woman to violence, something he was convicted of in 2019 and served a prison sentence for.

Threatened a person with a knife

The man is also suspected of serious unlawful threats and unlawful threats against another man.

Among other things, he is said to have shown a knife and threatened to kill or injure the person on the same day as the woman was attacked.

Additional death threats must have been sent to the person two days later.

The accused man denies all crimes.
