Espen Andersen Bråthen, who has been charged with the murders in Kongsberg on Wednesday, has consented to this. The order from Buskerud District Court is expected later today.

The remand proceedings were conducted as office proceedings, which means that the person charged did not appear in court.

The health service took charge of Bråthen on Thursday following an assessment of his health status.
