A Copenhagen City Court last weekend handed a Sudanese migrant two life sentences for murdering two Danish pensioners.

James Schmidt (Lual Yai Fayin Lual), a 27-year-old Sudanese migrant who’s previously been convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl and attempting to rape and murder the victim’s mother’s girlfriend, was sentenced last Sunday after being convicted of murdering Peter Jensen Olsen, aged 80, and Inez Hasselblad, aged 81, Jydske Vestkysten reports.

The Sudanese migrant, however, was acquitted of the murder of 82-year-old Eva Hoffmeister. 

Hoffmeister, Hasselblad, and Olsen had all lived the same apartment complex in the neighborhood of Østerbro in Copenhaged.

Schmidt had access to the apartment complex because he would sometimes stay with a family member who, at the time, was living in the same complex as the victims.
