Father and son sentenced to 19 years in strict regime prison for murdering local deputy in Karachaevo-Cherkessia
In Karachaevo-Cherkessia, father and son have been sentenced to strict-regime imprisonment for murdering a deputy of the City Assembly.
Having examined the materials provided by investigating authorities, the Karachayevo-Cherkessian Republic Supreme Court found the father and son guilty of an offense under item (g), part 2 of Art. 105, part 5 Art. 33, and item (g), part 2 of Art. 105 of the Russian Criminal Code.
During the investigation and subsequent trial it was established that on an evening in July 2014, Psabida Evgamukov driving Toyota Corolla pulled up to a football field located on the western edge of Psyzh village, Abaza municipal district of the Karachayevo-Cherkessian Republic. The locals were playing football; among them was the Deputy Mukhamed Kunizhev. Son of the accused man, Khomgot Evgamukov, arrived soon after that on another car.
Men got out of cars and headed towards Deputy. They both had guns; Khomgot carried a 12-bore smoothbore hunting carbine Sayga 12K, and his father Psabida had a traumatic pistol. After approaching the people's deputy within several meters, Evgamukov Jr. fired three shots at the man, followed by at least three shots from a traumatic pistol made by Evgamukov Sr.
Mukhamed Kunizhev received gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, which caused multiple injuries to internal organs. He died on the way to the hospital. As for the Evgamukovs, both of them fled the scene and were declared federally wanted by the police.
After they were detained, men pleaded guilty. According to them, they committed the murder out of personal animosity.
Once the investigation was complete, all case materials were referred to the court for consideration.
The court fully agreed with the arguments set forth by investigator and convicted the men. Evgamukov Jr. and Sr. were sentenced to 12 and 7 years in a strict-regime colony, respectively.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
