An Icelandic man who stabbed an Albanian man four times in the chest, killing him, and stabbing another Albanian three times has been charged with manslaughter and attempted manslaughter.

Dagur Hoe Sigurjónsson, 25, is also facing having to pay reparations to the victim’s parents, RÚV reports, for the killing of Klevis Sula.

As reported, Klevis and a friend were attacked by Dagur at Austurvöllur, in downtown Reykjavík, last December. According to police reports, Dagur stabbed Klevis four times: once in the heart, then in the right shoulder and twice in the back. He also stabbed Klevis’ friend three times, in the shoulder, arm and leg. Klevis later died of his injuries.

In addition to the manslaughter and attempted manslaughter charges, Dagur may also have to pay reparations to Klevis’ parents. His mother is asking for 10 million ISK in restitution, in addition to 870,000 ISK to cover expenses. His father is asking for 10 million ISK, while the survivor of the attack requests 3.2 million ISK.

For those perplexed by a charge of manslaughter, as opposed to murder, it bears mentioning that by Icelandic law, are killings are considered manslaughter; the word “murder” appears nowhere in Icelandic law.

Klevis’ death sparked tremendous grief in the Icelandic public, and for Klevis’ family.

“He was wonderful and wanted to help everyone. He spoke highly of Icelanders and liked the people,” Klevis’ mother Natasha Sula said shortly after the attack. “He was very happy being here.”
