A court in Ostrava on Friday sentenced a 39-year-old man to ten years in prison for killing a Romany man with a crossbow. The killing occurred in the north-eastern town of Chotěbuz last April when four Romany men searched for scrap metal outside the convicted man’s house. The man said he though they were thieves; he told them to leave and fired a bolt at them as they were getting in the car, hitting one of them in the head. The man later died in hospital. The court rejected the man’s claim he acted in self-defence and said the attacker was aware he could inflict severe injuries.
