Welcome to the forum, fellow Swede (:
Did he want to kill his best friend? Was his best friend a dog? Did he kill his friend in a video game? Were the hundreds of people there to watch him kill his best friend? Were they present? Or did they watch TV? Or similar? Did it happen in modern times? Or in Roman times? Is his profession relevant? Is his friend's? Can the killing be called an execution?
