Germany Indicts Swedish 'Laserman' with Killing 25 Years Ago

BERLIN (AP) — Prosecutors in Germany say they have indicted a 63-year-old Swedish man over the killing of a Jewish woman in Frankfurt 25 years ago.

The suspect, John Ausonius, is known as "Laserman" in Sweden for the gunsight he used in a series of shootings of immigrants in the Nordic country during the 1990s. He was convicted of one murder and nine attempted murders, and sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors in Frankfurt said Tuesday that Ausonius is also suspected of killing 68-year-old Blanka Zmigrod, an employee at a Moevenpick restaurant, on Feb, 23, 1992, and taking her handbag.

German prosecutors reopened the case in 2014 as part of a nationwide effort to review suspected far-right killings.

Ausonius agreed to be extradited to Germany in December.
