Street Parade killer gets four years

A court in Switzerland has sentenced a youth to four years in prison for a fatal stabbing at the 2007 Street Parade in Zurich.

The youth, now aged 17, stabbed an 18 year old to death and severely injured another man.

He was also found guilty of taking part in robberies - some of them armed - as a member of a gang, inflicting bodily injuries, violating the law on weapons and damaging property.

The prison sentence was the maximum that the court was able to inflict. It also said he should receive psychotherapy.
