The high court in Olomouc has confirmed a 30-year prison sentence for a 25-year-old man convicted of the brutal murder of two people. The court upheld the extraordinary sentence on the grounds of the exceptional brutality and callousness of the crime. The man, who admitted to the murders, killed his ex-girlfriends’ parents in their home as an act of revenge. Both suffered multiple stab wounds, many of them lethal. He then stole what cash there was in the house bought new clothes and a mobile and arranged a meeting with his former girlfriend. A thirty year sentence is the second highest punishment under Czech law, second to a life sentence.
