A UK tourist has been accused of killing a chef with a knife.
Craig Harris, 20, faces 21 years in prison.
He was arrested in the early hours of New Year’s Day after Kjetil Osthus was stabbed while setting off fireworks near his home in Haugesund, Norway.
Harris, from Oxford, was visiting close friend Rune Torresdal, 23 – considered accessory.
Police are said to be examining knives found at Torresdal’s apartment.
Both he and Harris are said to be known to be police officers on drug offenses.
Mr. Osthus, 28, works for star chef Geir Skeie.
Harris, who denies he was at the scene, is being held in Stavanger.
Benedicte Storhaug, a lawyer representing the victim’s family, said: “The murder appears to be completely senseless, without any reasonable motive.”
