Child murderers given 20+ years behind bars

A Czech man and woman found guilty of murdering a five-year-old boy - the woman’s son - have been handed sentences of 20 and 24 years in prison. In an apparent act of revenge against the child’s natural father, Antonie Stašková and her partner Pavel Grepl murdered the boy last December – a case that shocked the country. The couple abducted five-year-old Jan Rokos, failing to return him to his father who had legal custody. The boy died from stab wounds and strangulation at the hands of the couple. Police caught the perpetrators by chance while checking the suspects’ vehicle last year.
