Kemerovo: student kills teacher with dumbbell
The resident of the regional center committed murder for money and jewelry.
A resident of Kemerovo killed an elderly teacher, who taught at qualification courses. Money and jewelry were taken from the victim’s apartment. According to preliminary ifromation, the defendant was fond of gambling, the press service of the regional ICR’s Directorate reported.
On May 14, the 82-year-old teacher did not show up at work, although her colleagues knew her as a punctual person. The teachers decided to visit their colleague – the door of her apartment was open, and in one of the rooms a corpse with a fractured head was laying.
According to investigators, a 31-year-old local resident, who was previously convicted, was trained by the pensioner and once stole a large amount of money. The teacher filed a complaint with the police and refused to withdraw it when the student asked for it. During the quarrel, the student decided to kill her with a dumbbell, after which she stole jewelry, bank cards, savings books and seven thousand rubles ($ 110) in cash.
The investigation confiscated the stolen jewelry from one of the pawnshops, and detained the student and charged her with murder for mercenary motives combined with robbery (section 3 of para. 2 of Article 105 CCRF). The court authorized the arrest of the accused. Psychological and psychiatric examinations were commissioned in respect of the defendant.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
