The man has abused, threatened and raped the woman on several occasions between February 2021 and June 2022, according to the prosecutor.
On two occasions, he grabbed the woman's neck and held it long enough that she passed out.
- I do not want to go into any details regarding the crimes against the woman and the child due to confidentiality, says Åsa Jonsson, prosecutor.
According to the indictment, the accused man stomped on the woman's legs, kicked her in the back and pounded her on the floor.
He is also accused of having on one occasion threatened to cut the woman's throat, at the same time as holding a cutter to her throat.
"Says I deserve it"
Furthermore, the man is charged with breach of child protection after his and the woman's joint children, in October 2021, witnessed the man grabbing the woman by the neck and pinching her.
In police interrogations, the woman told about the assault and that the man's mood fluctuated very quickly.
- It probably starts with us just talking normally and then I might accidentally say something wrong or something like that and then I get a bit of a slur if you say that, says the woman in questioning and explains that:
- He just says it's my fault, that I deserve it, he would beat the whore out of me.
Had sawed off shotgun
The man is also charged with unlawful threats, as he is suspected on several occasions of having sent messages to the woman that she and other people would be killed, raped and kidnapped.
In addition to prosecution for several cases of unlawful threats and assault, child welfare violations and two cases of rape, it emerged that the man had a sawed-off shotgun, which he himself admitted during police interrogation.
The man did not have the right to have a weapon, and because he made changes to the rifle, he is charged with serious weapons offences.
- The trial is scheduled in two weeks.
The crimes committed against the child and the woman will be kept behind closed doors, says Åsa Jonsson and explains that:
- People will be heard during the trial, so I don't want to say anything more at the moment, she continues.
