Three men charged with murder of young girl

The police in Jihlava on Friday charged two men, aged 20, with the brutal murder of a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Another 18-year-old man has been charged with assisting the murderers and failing to report the crime. The police believe the girl came to apartment of one of the men willingly last Friday night; for reasons yet to be established. She was overpowered and thrown out of the window. The girl survived the fall so the men dragged her in again and strangled her. They later dumped the body at a waste disposal site outside the town where it was discovered earlier this week. The two 20-year-old men, who were placed in custody, face up to 20 years in jail while their 18-year-old accomplice could land a 4-year sentence.
