Svea Courts of Appeal overturned Mijailo Mijailovic life sentence for the murder Anna Lindh. He is instead sentenced to preventative custody.

According to Swedish radio, the appellate court overturned the life sentence Mijailovic got in March of this year.

Mijailovic’s lawyer claimed that his client either had to be acquitted or sentenced to preventative custody at a psychiatric institution. The judges at Svea Courts of Appeal ruled in favor of the defense lawyers who claimed that Mijailovic was not well enough to serve the jail sentence for the murder of Sweden’s Foreign Minister Anna Lindh, and sentenced Mijailovic to preventative custody.
