“This is a woman born in 1973. She was apprehended at 6pm on Wednesday and was formally arrested at 8.45pm,” said police spokesperson Eva-Lotta Hermansson Truedsson to news agency TT.
According to prosecutor Magnus Larsson, the arrested woman could be described as close to the victim.
He said that the woman is under suspicion of instigating the murder and that it is possible that the circle of suspects could widen.
Currently, it doesn’t seem as if either of the two apprehended suspects will be released.
“Not the way it looks right now, but there are a number of measures being carried out and the situation could easily change,” said the prosecutor to TT.
Police arrested the woman’s 16-year-old brother after finding him outside the apartment, the Aftonbladet newspaper reported on Wednesday.
It has been alleged that the boy killed his sister for disgracing their family by having several boyfriends and trying to build a life for herself away from home, but this has not been confirmed by police.
