Norway court sentences knife and arrow attacker to psychiatric care
9 days ago
OSLO - A Norway court has sentenced a Danish man to full-time psychiatric care after he pleaded guilty to stabbing five people to death and shooting a bow and arrow in a chilling attack last year. Espen Andersen Brathen, who is Danish but lives in Norway, used a bow and arrow inside and outside a supermarket to attack several people before stabbing to death five other residents in their homes or on the street while spreading terror through the normally peaceful southeastern town of Kongsberg in October. Last month, the 38-year-old who has long-suffered from mental illness, pleaded guilty to the charges of murder and attempted murder.
