Swedish man held after woman dies during sex game
A Swedish man will stand trial for manslaughter for allegedly killing his German girlfriend during a brutal sex game, a media report said Monday.
The 28-year-old German woman exchange student was hit over 100 times with a wooden blackboard pointer by the 31-year-old man at his home in Umea in northern Sweden in October 2012, the Daily Mail reported.
The man said the woman was a willing "sex slave" in the game.
Police said the man raised the alarm when the woman stopped breathing during their violent sex session.
The woman was treated for two days in the intensive care ward of a local hospital before her life support machines were switched off.
She had sustained brain damage as a result of her airways being restricted.
Police said she took a cocaine substitute and drank alcohol before the sex session.
A prosecutor said the woman had her mouth stuffed with something that led directly to her death.
