A student aged 18 who attacked and killed two teachers at a Swedish highschool with an axe has been sentenced to life imprisonment

Fabian Vidar Cederholm was convicted of two murder charges on Thursday

He was sentenced for life in prison, which in Sweden is a minimum of 20-25 years. However, it could be increased.

Cederholm was a student in Malmo (Sweden’s third-largest) school where he committed the attacks.

Vicki Edstrom and Sara Book, the victims, were discovered on the third floor at Malmo Latin School 10 minutes after being alerted by police.

The school has approximately 1,100 students. Students gathered together to create a musical.

Many people locked themselves in classrooms as the attacks started.

Malmo District Court heard that Cederholm hacked the staff members to death with an “axe”.

Judge Johan Kvart stated that Cederholm also used a knife.

In a statement, the judge stated that “these are two very brutal killings where the victims suffered severely.”

Cederholm was taken into custody shortly after the incident, which took place on 21 March.

He was not known by authorities before and had no criminal records.

Johanna Liljeblad, the prosecutor, had requested that Cederholm be sentenced to death for having confessed to the crime.

Cederholm’s lawyer had previously told Swedish media that Cederholm’s actions were “completely unexplainable”.

According to the court, the motive behind the violence was not completely understood.
