Gunman charged in Norway Massacre

| No Comments

Prosecutors indicted confessed killer Anders Behring Breivik on Wednesday with terrorist acts that killed 77 people last summer.
Views and News from Norway reported that Breivik was charged with two separate terrorist acts. One from a bomb that killed eight people in Oslo and the other for murder of 69 people on Utoya Island.
The Boston Globe reports that the terror charges hold a maximum penalty of 21 years in prison, but can be extended.
Prosecutors said that is it unlikely that Breivik will go jail. The Boston Globe reported they deem him to be mentally unstable and "will seek a sentence of involuntary commitment to psychiatric care instead of imprisonment."
The trial is set to begin on April 16, according to Views and News from Norway.
