The 32-year-old who was recently sentenced to seven years in prison for stabbing a man to death in Lakselv in December 2019 is appealing the Court of Appeal’s verdict.

The man’s lawyer Marius Ihlebæk confirmed the news to Ságat.

“The Court of Appeal has placed too little emphasis on the mitigating circumstances in the case, such as the fact that my client called AMK immediately,” Ihlebæk said.

Andrzej Karol Antosiak from Poland was found stabbed to death in an apartment in Lakselv in Porsanger municipality in Troms and Finnmark on December 3, 2019. 

The 40-year-old died of extensive internal bleeding after being stabbed.

Sentenced to seven years in prison

Just before Christmas, the 32-year-old man was sentenced to seven years in prison in Hålogaland Court of Appeal. 

He was also sentenced to pay a total of NOK 600,000 in restitution to the deceased’s parents and two children.

The sentence was two years and seven months shorter than what the Inner Finnmark District Court decided this summer.

The man denied any criminal guilt.
