Man dead after stabbing in Vardø – wife charged – Dagsavisen

– She is having a hard time and does not plead guilty, writes the woman’s defender, lawyer Jens Bernhard Herstad, in a text message to TV 2 and VG at 6 pm on Saturday evening. He adds that the woman is being questioned by the police.

The people involved are spouses, but do not have a residential address in Finnmark and were previously not known to the police locally, Finnmark Police District stated in a press release earlier in the day. The woman is charged with grievous bodily harm resulting in death.

It was a little before 9pm on Friday evening that the police were alerted to the incident by health personnel at the scene. An injured man was found at the address. He was conscious when he was sent to the hospital in Hammerfest, but died later that night as a result of his injuries.

Relatives have been notified of the death.

– The deceased will be sent for an autopsy, explains section leader for tactical investigation Torstein Pettersen in the press release.

The accused woman is the same age as the victim. She has given an initial explanation to the police, but Pettersen will not go into what she has explained.

He informs The daily newspaper that the accused has previously been convicted of violence against the husband. VG writes that in December 2022 she was convicted of stabbing the man, but at the time he was not life-threateningly injured.

The woman claimed she acted out of necessity, but was sentenced to prison for 90 days.
