Teen in Sweden jailed eight years for honour killing
A Swedish court on Tuesday sentenced a 17-year-old man to eight years in prison for stabbing his sister 107 times in what judges called an honour killing.
The teen, who was 16 at the time, was convicted of killing his 19-year-old sister at her home in the southwestern town of Landskrona on April 23 last year.
He had called emergency services and said a masked attacker had killed her, but investigators said his story didn't hold up against evidence found at the scene.
