US citizen Dahlgren gets life for quadruple murder

The regional court in Brno has sentenced US citizen Kevin Dahlgren to life in prison for the murder of four people in the city in 2013. Delivering the verdict on Wednesday, judge Michal Zámečník said that the 24-year-old had seen his victims as “representatives of a frustrating world”, adding that Dahlgren’s personality disorders meant there was a high risk he could kill again. After murdering four relatives of his in the Brno district of Ivanovice the American immediately fled to the US; last year he became the first citizen of his country to be extradited to the Czech Republic. Mr Dahlgren has appealed the verdict.
