Teen jailed for 8 years for killing sister
A Swedish court sentenced a 17-year-old boy to eight years in prison Tuesday for stabbing his sister to death, officials said.
During the sentencing, the court referred to the murder as an "honor killing," the Swedish news agency TT reported.
The teen's defense attorney, Urban Jansson, termed the sentence "incredibly harsh" and said his client was "in shock."
