A court in Ostrava sentenced a 31-year-old former secondary school teacher to 24 years in prison for the murders of one of his students and her grandfather. The court also ordered the man to pay 2.6 million crowns in compensation to the victims’ relatives and to health insurance firms. The court said that the man was engaged in a relationship with a one of his students. When the 17-year-old girl left him after one month, he arrived at her house, shooting her and her grandfather dead and seriously wounding the student’s grandmother. He was arrested shortly after the rampage.
