Man accused of killing Muscovite and her son arrested for two months
The crime, as it turned out, was paid for and committed because of a share in the apartment that left by the victim’s husband.
Dmitry Batygin, accused of the brutal killings by of a Moscow resident and her 12-year-old son, was arrested for two months. He will be in custody until January 7, 2019.
During the interrogation, he earlier admitted that it was him that had pulled off the murder, but before the court session, answering journalists' questions, he said: "What makes you think it was me (that killed the woman and the child. - Ed.)?"
The evening of November 7 saw the bodies of a woman and her 12-year-old son with multiple stab wounds being found in an apartment in a Moscow high-rise apartment house in Sofya Kovalevskaya Street.
A 38-year-old resident of the Vladimir region was detained on suspicion of murder, but his guilt was not confirmed. The police later detained a new suspect - a 30-year-old Muscovite. Law enforcement officers found irrefutable evidence in his apartment - the clothes of the defunct. During the interrogation, he pleaded guilty and said that he was ready to cooperate with the investigation.
A new fact appeared in the murder case. As previously reported, it was the sister of the late husband of the victim that ordered the murder of the woman and the child, and the crime itself was committed because of a share in the apartment left by the deceased to the killed woman and her son.
