A 49 year old man has been charged of pressuring his teenage boy to stab his mother with a knife.
The mother was stabbed in the stomach in October of last year, in her apartment.

Shortly thereafter her son, then 13 years old, turned himself in. He brought along the knife, packed in kitchen-roll paper, with some blood still on it. But, according to the prosecution, the now 14-year old is not the only culprit. They believe the boy’s father is the mastermind behind the crime. The father denies the charges.
The husband has previously been convicted of threats against the wife and a social worker.
“I’ll kill you and cut your head off” was one of the messages he made his oldest son to send via SMS.
The couple came to Denmark in the early ’90s because he was persecuted in Iraq.
Tomorrow the woman and her son, who did the stabbing, will take the stand. Sentencing is expected on Thursday.
