A man from Fredrikstad has been sentenced by the Court of Appeals to six years’ imprisonment for having ordered the murder of his daughter’s boyfriend.

Two weeks ago, the the jury in the Court of Appeal found the man guilty of having struck an agreement wherein another man would kill his daughter’s boyfriend for 250,000 kroner.
Now, the Court of Appeal has sentenced the Afghan family father to six years’ imprisonment, NRK news reports.
The 45-year-old from Fredrikstad has also been convicted of repeated violence against his daughter.
The man was acquitted in the Oslo District Court in March last year, but prosecutors appealed the case.
