Man admits to daughter's 'honour killing' murder
A man suspected of killing his 21-year-old daughter in Katrineholm in central Sweden admitted on Tuesday to murdering her in what his lawyer described as a possible honour killing.
"I am not sure that the case meets all the criteria to be classified as honour-related, but it leans in that direction," lawyer Bo Johansson said on Wednesday.
The woman's body was found on Monday morning at 9am after her father went to the police and reported what had happened, after which he was arrested, according to the local Södermanlands Nyheter daily on Monday.
