No information on possible motives

A 14-year-old girl died in the knife attack on December 5, and her 13-year-old friend was seriously injured. She has now been able to leave the hospital.

The alleged perpetrator is in custody in a prison hospital.

According to the public prosecutor, he had been operated on for hours after the crime with considerable injuries.
