A Swedish court has approved the extradition to Germany of one of Sweden's most notorious prisoners to stand trial in the killing of a Jewish woman in Frankfurt in 1992.

The Sodertorns District Court said Thursday that John Ausonius should serve any German sentence he may get in Sweden.

Dubbed "Laserman" for the gunsight he used, Ausonius is serving a life sentence in Sweden for a series of shootings of immigrants in the 1990s. He was convicted of one murder and nine attempted murders.

The court added a transfer "must be executed within 10 days."

Ausonius, now 63, himself wasn't against being extradited to Germany, according to Swedish media.
