The man accused in the Pori murder case was on Thursday sentenced to life in prison for brutally murdering his ex-girlfriend. 
 
In addition, the man was sentenced to pay compensation totalling some 60,000 euros to the girl’s mother and other family members.
 
The 17-year-old girl left home to go jogging in Pori at the end of January 2015. Her body was found in a burnt building in Kokemäki. The man had been watching the girl’s home and took her while she was jogging. He drove away from Pori, taking the girl with him.
 
A witness in Ulvila saw the car in the parking lot of a grocery store, behind which there was a hidden oblong object in the ground. Later, trained dogs found the spot mentioned. 
 
The court found that the girl had been lying in the store’s parking lot. The man’s injuries suggested he had struggled with his victim.
 
At the Kokemäki animal shelter, the man tied up the girl and poured gasoline over her. Still alive, he set fire to her body. The Satakunta District Court held the premeditated murder to be especially brutal.
 
Prosecutor Kalle Kulmala praised the court’s decision, saying the court worked the way it is supposed to.
