If the 27-year-old James Schmidt, who is accused of rovmord on three pensioners at Østerbro in Copenhagen, release for a sentence of life imprisonment, he shall instead be sentenced to custody for an indefinite time.

It takes the attorney general in Copenhagen, which now has acceded to the prosecution's alternative argument during the trial, which begins on 3. march must be custody.

It came forward in the Copenhagen city Court today, where the remand of James Schmidt was extended right up to the verdict, which is expected to decline the 13. may.

Both life imprisonment and the detention is for an indefinite time. But the difference is that at the lifetime of the convicted serve at least 12 years in prison before he can apply for parole, while a judgment for custody, in principle, can be repealed after a few years, if the convicted person is no longer assessed as dangerous.

Forvaringsdømte sitting, however, an average of more than 14 years in prison. But prosecutor Søren Harbo has previously said to Ekstra Bladet, that he is in the forefront prohibits the assertion of a sentence of life imprisonment for James Schmidt, because the prosecution believes that life is the surest punishment.

In court today declared Søren Harbo also, that he has asked Probation to explain why James Schmidt, who was previously known as the Lual Lual, has been serving its previous judgments on the full time.

He has not been released on parole, which is unusual, because the vast majority of the convicts are being released after serving two-thirds of the sentence.

James Schmidt is accused of having strangled the three retired at 80, 81 and 82 in their apartments at Vangehusvej 1 B and F in the time from 5. February to 8. march of last year. He was out after their credit card was misused after the killings to purchases and cash withdrawals.

In the hearing on Wednesday tried his defender, lawyer Mie Sønder Koch, again to get his client released. She believes simply that the police material against him did not hold.

the Lawyer said that she has asked the police to investigate a gym card and interrogate a woman from a tattoo artist-shop, but she had not said what these investigative steps must be used to. It may, however, indicate that James Schmidt believes that he has an alibi for one or more of the murders.

Prosecutor Søren Harbo said that the investigation in the case is over, and it will now be ’honed’ with among other things, maps of teleanalyser.

James Schmidt sits in custody in Elsinore arrest, and he and the defender was in the hearing on a video link from the jail.
