On Monday, two boys aged 18 and 17 died after being stabbed. One was stabbed in the neck, the other in the heart. Another boy, 17, was stabbed in the leg, but his injuries were not fatal.
Both defendants, aged 16 and 17, plead not guilty. The charges for both are murder and attempted murder, which the indictment stated was committed “by association, by prior agreement and with intent to kill”.
Jens Lang Rask, who defended the 17-year-old, who remains in custody, entered the plea yesterday on behalf of his client, who claims he acted out of necessity.
The boy turned himself in on Tuesday, the day after the stabbing. The other boy, 16, was subsequently arrested. It is currently being decided whether he should also be remanded in custody.
