10-year-old Swedish boy confesses to killing 4-year-old
STOCKHOLM (AP) - Police in Sweden say a 10-year-old boy has confessed to killing a 4-year-old boy in a village earlier this year. Police said on Wednesday the boy strangled the younger one with a skipping rope on Oct 16, but declined to comment on the motive. Local media reports say the 4-year-old was killed after running off from a playground in the southern village of Ljungby where he had been involved in a dispute with other children. The boy was found dead in a shrub near a residential area a few hours later.
