American gets life for quadruple murder in Czech city

PRAGUE,(APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th july,2016) - A Czech court handed a life sentence to an American citizen Wednesday for killing four of his relatives and trying to burn their bodies while he was staying with them in 2013. Kevin Dahlgren, 24, fatally slashed a man 29 times in his study before also stabbing the man's wife and their 23-year-old son to death at their home in Brno, eastern Czech Republic.

Brno regional court judge Michal Zamecnik ruled that Dahlgren suffered from emotional instability, narcissism, paranoia and increased aggression.

Following the frenzied assault, he attacked the dead couple's 17-year-old son, striking him on the head with a stone as he returned home from school before stabbing him six times, said the judge. He then tried to burn the bodies of his victims inside the house. Czech media said the dead woman was Dahlgren's cousin.
