A 35-year-old man has been sentenced to preventive detention for eight and a half years for two attempted murders in Ammerud, the newspaper Avisa Oslo reports.
The 35-year-old was charged with attempted murder after stabbing two men at Ammerud in Oslo in April 2020. One was found injured outdoors, and the other was found critically injured inside the 35-year-old’s apartment.
The attempted murders are considered to be very brutal, according to the court. According to the verdict, the only reason the man did not carry out the murder of one of the two men was that the cohabitant managed to pull him away, the newspaper writes.
The man who was severely injured was stabbed with a kitchen knife with a knife blade of 22 centimeters. According to the verdict, without immediate medical treatment, the man would have died.
The three all belong to a drug-related environment. The convicted man has been convicted a number of times before, including for possession of a weapon, making threats, and violent offenses.
The 35-year-old denied criminal guilt during the trial and claimed that he acted in self-defense.
In the Oslo District Court verdict, the man was sentenced to preventive detention for eight and a half years, with a minimum of five and a half years. In addition, he must pay a reparation of NOK 175,000 to each of the two victims.
