A failed Albanian asylum seeker sentenced to 18 years in a Swedish prison for murdering his girlfriend’s daughter with an axe had also been found guilty of murder in Greece years before he attempted to claim asylum.
Durim Lumi, 36, was found guilty of the murder of a young woman in Värmland in May. Lumi is said to have “executed” the woman, who was the daughter of his girlfriend, with an axe claiming he felt threatened by her, Expressen reports.
Prosecutor Per Svensson said: “I mean it is clear that it may not have been that he felt threatened by her. The murder has the character of a clean execution.”
Svensson also noted that the failed asylum seeker, who was living in Sweden illegally at the time of the murder, had been found guilty of murder before while living in Greece. He presented documents to the court that showed Lumi had killed a man with a knife at around the turn of the millennium.
