Prague’s High Court next week will weigh an appeal by convicted murderer Petr Mokriš, a thief and recidivist who killed a 21-year-old journalist in 1993. Invited back to her home, Mokriš stabbed and strangled the woman and stole electronic equipment worth 18,000 crowns. He was released from prison in 2008. This year, the man was found guilty and sentenced to 14 years in prison by Prague’s Municipal Court for his role in another tragedy: a fight in which he badly beat his opponent, who fell and suffered a brain injury – to which he succumbed almost a year later in hospital.
