Two men sentenced over brutal killing of taxi driver

They assaulted the taxi driver with a blunt object and made off with 1,000 kroner

Two men have been sentenced today to eight years in prison for the brutal assault of a 65-year-old taxi driver, reports Jyllands-Posten.

Mytham Al-Bahadeli and Libaan Muuse Ashur Hassan, both of whom are now 18 years old, beat the man to death over 1,000 kroner last year in Brønshøj.

According to the judge, they used brute force of a particularly crude character.

Attacked with blunt object
The attack occurred shortly after midnight on October 31 last year, when one of the offenders called Taxi Nord to get a lift and have his bicycle picked-up.

As the taxi driver got out of the car to put the bike rack on, the men attacked him with a blunt object and stole 1,000 kroner from him.

The taxi driver died a day later in hospital from his injuries.

Both men have appealed the decision.
