Jail for 15-hour rape and torture of wife's lover
11:29 CEST+02:00
A father-of-four in Oslo has been sentenced to eight and a half years in prison for torturing, raping and blackmailing his wife's lover in a 15-hour ordeal after he found them naked in bed.

The Oslo District Court found the 46-year-old guilty of aggravated rape, kidnapping and blackmail, reported the Verdens Gang newspaper on Wednesday.

The man must also pay a total of 315,000 Norwegian kroner ($53,000) in damages to his victim, whom he found in bed with his wife in September last year. The husband proceeded to tie the lover to a radiator, and beat him with an axe, bottle and cables. He then raped his victim.

The assailant filmed parts of the 15-hour torture and demanded that the victim pay him 10,000 kroner to ensure the video was not sent to his family.
