Danish court approves extradition of murder suspect to Poland

A Copenhagen court agreed on Wednesday to the extradition to Poland of a Norwegian citizen suspected of murdering a Polish woman, a Danish police representative has told PAP.

Ingebrit G., a 26-year-old Norwegian man whose surname has been withheld for legal reasons, will be charged in Poland with murder and child abduction. The Krakow District Court had earlier issued a European Arrest Warrant for the man.

The 26-year-old victim was found in an apartment in the southern Polish town of Oswiecim in early November by her father, though her five-year-old daughter Mia and the child's father, Ingebrit G., were not at the premises.

Police launched a hunt for the Norwegian and issued a Child Alert for the girl. A few hours later, the man was apprehended on a Copenhagen highway driving a car with Oswiecim licence plates and Mia sitting in the back.

A post mortem established that the victim had died of injuries and blood loss and an unofficial source told PAP the woman also had wounds consistent with self-defence.
