A Czech court sentenced an American to life in prison Wednesday after he was convicted of murdering a family of four three years ago.
A judge ruled that Kevin Dahlgren, 24, fatally stabbed a mother, father, and their two sons in their home during a visit to the Czech town of Brno on May 22, 2013.
Dahlgren, originally from Palo Alto, California, was arrested at a Washington, D.C. airport the next day after Czech authorities issued an international warrant.
Czech authorities found the four bodies in a family house in the city of Brno, about 200 kilometers southeast of Prague. Dahlgren was a relative of the victims.
Dahlgren refused to testify at the regional court in Brno, but called the event a tragedy.
