Police have charged two women from the south Bohemian town of Tábor with the murder of a 54-year-old goldsmith in České Budějovice in December. The man was found dead in his home on December 15th; he had been stabbed repeatedly but the murder weapon was not recovered. It is thought that theft was the main motive, as a suitcase filled with money and gold disappeared from the man’s home, where he kept a professional workshop. The suspects – 38 and 43 years of age – will remain in custody ahead of trial; if found guilty they could face exceptional sentences for unusual brutality in the killing, the police said. Neither of the suspects has a previous criminal record.
