Police have arrested the man who was wanted, and charged with the murder in Prinsdal. The 20-year-old was taken on the border between Hungary and Serbia.

“Thus, two men have been charged and arrested in the case. Work on getting the last one arrested in Norway is already underway,” said Oslo Police District Inspector Grete Lien Metlid at a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

The police hope that it will be faster and easier to get him to the country as an agreement has been reached with the EU on European arrest warrants.

“We have sent papers down to Hungary, but it is too early to say when he can be here. He has not been appointed a defense lawyer,” Metlid said.

The other accused of murder or complicity in the murder, an 18-year-old man from Oslo, was questioned on Thursday.

“Questioning ended a short time ago. He has been returned to the cell and is being held in custody tomorrow. The questioning continues tomorrow morning,” said the police inspector at the brief press conference held at 5.30 p.m.

The police have some clues about the roles the two have taken.

“We still hold the cards a little tight and have quite a bit of information, but there may be further developments in the case,” Metlid said.

She reiterated that there may be more charges in the case. Metlid stated that the police still have many people working on this case and that they will keep up the pressure in the investigation this weekend.
