Man accused of killing stewardess in New Moscow recognized as sane
He was diagnosed with personality disorder and impulsive behavior, but he had been aware of his actions at the time of the incident.
Nikita Enin, the man accused of killing a stewardess in New Moscow, is recognized as sane by experts at the Serbsky Institute, TASS reports citing a source in medical circles.
“Enin is recognized as prone to an affective state; experts diagnosed him with personality disorder and impulsive behavior. At the same time, he was recognized as having been legally sane during the period related to the crime as the doctors found no signs of temporary mental disorder and he does not need any compulsory medical measures to be applied to him,” the source said.
Enin’s lawyer, Andrei Mishonov, confirmed the findings of the examination but noted that the conclusion was self-contradictory and vague, so he would insist on another study.
The body of 23-year-old stewardess Albina Mukhametzyanova was discovered on July 10, at the Vnukovo Village hotel in New Moscow. Two days later, law enforcement officers detained Nikita Enin, 25. The young man admitted his deed. According to him, he had found texts from other men on the woman’s phone and thought she might be cheating. They were arguing when at some point, Enin attacked the woman and strangled her. After that, he carried the body to the bath and filled it with water. Then he took the woman’s phone and bank cards, extended her stay in the hotel room and left.
Enin was allegedly planning to commit suicide but ended up calling a friend two days later and coming to him at Universitet metro station, where he was detained by police. When he saw people in uniform, he took out a knife and tried to resist detention.
During interrogation, Enin admitted that he had tried to strangle Mukhametzyanova before, several months ago. After that, the woman would not talk to him for some time but they reconciled eventually.
