American Charged with 4 Murders on Trial in Czech Republic

Tuesday, 31 May 2016 05:24 AM

PRAGUE (AP) — An American man charged with murder over the killing of four of his relatives has gone on trial in the Czech Republic.

Prosecutors say the suspect, Kevin Dahlgren, fatally stabbed his cousin, her husband and their son, and later killed another son — likely using a stone. The killings happened during a visit by Dahlgren to the Czech city of Brno in May 2013. Authorities say he apparently tried to burn three of the bodies.

Dahlgren refused to testify Tuesday at the regional court in Brno.

Dahlgren, of Palo Alto, California, was detained at Washington Dulles International Airport as he returned from the visit. He was extradited to the Czech Republic last year.

If convicted of committing four murders, Dahlgren could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
