A court in Ostrava has sentenced Petr Kramný to 28 years in prison for murdering his wife and ten-year-old daughter while on holiday in Egypt in 2013. He also has to pay out close to nine million crowns in damages to his wife’s relatives. Medical experts who examined the bodies concluded that they were killed by a strong electric charge, rather than having been poisoned as was originally assumed by the Egyptian authorities. Kramný, who denied the charges, has already spent two years in custody.
