According to the investigation, the 69-year-old ex-officer beat and strangled a woman, and then scattered furniture, clothes, and documents around the house to simulate a robbery. Then the man disappeared.
According to sources of the bodies, the arrested person worked for several years as deputy prosecutor of the Nizhny Novgorod region. Currently, he is retired.
The pensioner was detained on July 17. He was charged with Murder (part 1 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code). He did not admit his guilt.
According to sources of RIA Novosti, the detainee is retired General Viktor Morozov. The murder occurred on March 5. Otkryty Nizhny reports that the possible cause of the conflict between the victim and Morozov could be her workplace - the pharmacy. According to the neighbors of the accused, his wife suffers from brain cancer. Morozov bought anesthetics from a neighbor on prescription. At some point, the pensioner ran out of money, and he stashed the medicine. The ground for the quarrel could be the woman's refusal to give out the anesthetic and the claim to return the money.
