A man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for killing his ex-wife in Strømmen in April of 2019. The court believes the murder was committed intentionally.

The 32-year-old pleaded guilty to killing his ex-wife, a 33-year-old mother of a small child, on April 1, 2019. The woman suffered approximately 45 stab wounds. 

Both the man and the deceased are Iranian citizens and have a daughter together.

“I plead guilty to killing my wife. I take responsibility for it, but I’m not proud of it. I would like to say that to my family and everyone who has known us through all the years,” the 32-year-old said when the trial started, according to newspaper Romerikes Blad.


The man must also pay a total of NOK 400,000 in compensation to the bereaved.

The man has also been convicted of threatening a person who came to the scene after the murder. He was also found guilty of vandalism in a prison cell when he was imprisoned.

The unanimous verdict was passed in Nedre Romerike district court on Thursday.
