A 46-year-old man has been found guilty in Vestfold District Court of killing Thea Halvorsen Braavold from Sandefjord. The penalty is 21 years of preventive detention.
The woman was found killed in her apartment in February last year.
The 46-year-old, who was in love with the woman, has always denied criminal guilt.
The man has previously been convicted of another murder and was released in September 2018 after serving his sentence.
According to TV 2, Dagbladet, and NRK, the man was sentenced in line with the law’s most severe punishment, 21 years of preventive detention, with a minimum term of ten years. The court believes he is a great danger to society.
The 46-year-old appealed the verdict on the spot.
