The Local mentions enough about this murder that an intelligent reader can work out the motive. According to the comments the Swedish language newspapers are being much more vague.
A 17-year-old boy in southern Sweden was charged on Wednesday with the murder of his 19-year-old sister, who died in April after being stabbed more than 100 times with two knives and a pair of scissors.
Prosecutor Magnus Larsson told the gathered press at a meeting on Wednesday that the boy denies the allegations against him and claims that the girl sustained the injuries from a masked perpetrator. Police have so far not been able to come up with a motive for the brutal attack. “In the press there have been speculations into some sort of honour motive,” said Larsson adding that police had found no evidence supporting that theory.
The young woman had been in touch with the social services in Landskrona, in Skåne county,for some time due to threats and violence from her family.
The girl had sought help from the Swedish authorities as early as 2009. The Swedish foreign ministry had been in contact with the social services after the girl had left a forced marriage abroad and was returning to her mother in Sweden.
