Austria: 3 men convicted in rape, death of 13-year-old girl


BERLIN (AP) — An Austrian court has convicted three Afghan men for the rape and death of a 13-year-old girl whose body was found dumped next to a tree in Vienna last year in a case that shocked the Alpine nation. The Austria Press Agency reported Friday that the main defendant, a 24-year-old man, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. Two other Afghans aged 20 and 19, were found guilty of murder by omission for failing to help the girl after she overdosed on drugs. The younger man was sentenced to 20 years, while the older man received a 19-year sentence. The court concluded that the men had given the girl drugs with the intention of raping her.
