A father and his son have been sentenced in Asker and Bærum District Court to seven years in prison for attempted honor killing in May last year.

According to the verdict, the motive behind the attempted murder was that the daughter had chosen the wrong husband.

The father in his 60s and his son in his 30s were unanimously convicted when the case was heard in Asker and Bærum district court in August, writes VG.

In addition to the prison sentence, the two have been sentenced to pay restitution of 200,000 kroner.

It was Budstikka that first mentioned the verdict.

The two men visited the groom’s brother in Rykkinn on the 7th of May last year, where they were told that their daughter had left on honeymoon. A fight broke out between the two men and the victim a man in his 40s. During the brawl, the groom’s brother was stabbed with a knife, and an electroshock weapon was also used, according to the indictment.

The reason they attacked the groom’s brother was because the couple had already left and boarded a plane for their honeymoon, something the father had learned via a text message.

The two have denied criminal guilt, and both will appeal the verdict.
