13-08-2013

Police in the Indian state of Goa have extended the detention of a 19-year-old Czech man, who is suspected of brutally killing a 24-year-old Czech woman at a seaside resort, according to a report in The Times of India. The body of the young woman, who suffered multiple stab wounds and cuts, was found last Wednesday in the hotel room she shared with the suspect. The man was later found unconscious in the vicinity with a large knife next to him. The man denied any wrongdoing, though later the Indian press reported that he had confessed. India does not have an extradition agreement with the Czech Republic and if convicted, the man could face a life sentence, according to Indian law.
