A man aged around 30 has been charged over the death of his mother in Hafnarfjörður at the start of April.

Kolbrún Benediktsdóttir, vice district prosecutor, has confirmed with RÚV that a homicide charge has been brought against the man, but not yet publicised in the national legal journal. A court is expected to take the case within the next few days and set a date for a trial. Kolbrún could not give any further details at this time.

The woman was stabbed and it is believed she died from her wounds. She was already dead when police arrived at her home in the early hours of 6th April. The man was arrested shortly afterwards and remains in custody today.
