Man sentenced to 20 years for murder

Prague’s Municipal Court sentenced a 27-year-old to 20 years in prison for the murder of his mother using a hockey stick and a sharp unspecified item last year. The murder took place at her home in September. The man admitted guilt but denied money was a motive. The suspect took 40 thousand crowns from the victim’s purse after hiding the body in the attic. He was arrested by the police who had been notified by a close relative. Psychologists who examined the murderer indicated he could not be reformed; the sentence can still be appealed.
