Norway Os murder suspect arrested

An 18-year-old man has been indicted for allegedly killing 98-year-old pensioner Hilda Feste.



Police say their move follows his DNA having been matched after he gave a sample when he was considered a witness in the case.

Hilda Feste was killed on New Year’s Day in her care home in Os, Hordaland in the west of the country. Her body, which had also been subjected to a sexual attack, was found after she had triggered her alarm.

The man, a resident of Os, was arrested in his home on Tuesday evening and will remain in police custody until Thursday or Friday.

According to his lawyer, Rolf Knudsen, he has offered to cooperate fully with police but “does not recognise the charges and is taking his indictment for this grievous killing very hard. He can neither comprehend nor understand why he should be connected with something like this.”

“My client has explained he was heavily intoxicated by alcohol at the time of the killing and is unable to assist very much in accounting for his movements in the preceding hours. He remembers he was with a friend, but that is pretty much all,” Mr Knudsen told NRK earlier today.
