Execution Rock

Stefan Jansson

Back in 1853 Anders Gustav Pettersson brutally murdered his employer Hugo Fredrik Jaedren at the gates to the Näringsberg estate, together with a compatriot. They were arrested the following day. The trial took place at Tingshuset in Västerhaninge, and two years later Anders Gustav Pettersson became the last person to be executed at this galgsten in Jordbro. He was beheaded.
