Court keeps killer Dahlgren on remand pending appeal hearing

The Brno Regional Court has decided to keep murderer Kevin Dahlgren in remand pending his appeal hearing. The US citizen is facing a life sentence for killing four relatives of his in the Moravian capital in 2013. Mr. Dahlgren’s lawyer told reporters on Friday that there had been little chance the court would agree to his client’s request to be released. The court said there were fears he might flee the country if let go. Mr. Dahlgren was the first US citizen ever extradited from the United States to the Czech Republic.
