The hunting accident took place in December 2010, but the case went on until last week.
First, Municipal Court in Växjö acquitted the female hunter, but the judges where split and therefore the prosecutor chose to appeal the acquittal.
Therefore, the case was in court again last week. The high court in Göta agreed with the district court's order and confirmed that the hunter was not guilty.
The high court make clear in its reasons for acquittal that the hunter has done everything a hunter can do to ensure that the shot was safe.
