Man gets life sentence for cutting girl’s throat

A regional court has handed a 37-year-old man a life sentence for the brutal murder of a twenty-year-old student. The murder took place in the summer of 2005 when the girl hitched a ride home to Liberec. The man sexually abused her and then cut her throat for fear that she would report him, later boasting about what he had done to a friend in the pub. Although the man later said he’d made up the story police found enough evidence to convict him. The judge said he had acted with exceptional brutality, clearly had no conscience and posed a serious threat to society.
