Anders Eklund suspected of rape
Anders Eklund, the 42-year-old man who has confessed to the murder of 10-year-old Engla Juncosa Höglund, is also believed by police to have raped the girl.

Police in Dalarna in central Sweden also suspect Eklund of the rape and murder of 31-year-old Pernilla Hellgren eight years ago.

“Eklund is suspected of two counts of murder, aggravated child rape, aggravated rape, child pornography offences and attempted rape,” said the police in a statement.

It is not known where the suspect stands in relation to the accusations against him.

Police said that Eklund would not be interrogated again until the results of a psychiatric evaluation became available in around a month’s time.

Prosecutors are not expected to present formal charges against Eklund until July.
