Video: interrogation of Kaluga veteran’s murderer
The addict told why he beat the man to death.
A video appeared on the web, showing the interrogation of the man accused of killing 92-year-old WWII veteran Boris Ignatyev in Maloyaroslavets.
“I came to the man to ask for money, to which he refused. After that, I hit him, and he fell. I took the money and left,” Dmitry Sovko, 34, said at the crime scene.
Five years ago, Sovko, who is engaged in the installation of windows, came to the veteran to enclose his balcony with glass, Mash reports. That was when he noticed that Ignatyev lived alone.
Sovko has been charged with two articles. The defendant has fully pleaded guilty.
It was previously reported that the veteran was murdered by a drug addict from Maloyaroslavets, who hit the old man at least 10 times. He committed the murder for the sake of money.
Boris Ignatyev was born in 1926 and drafted into the army in January 1944. He took part in hostilities in Europe until January 1945.
Kaluga Governor Anatoly Artamonov proposes to execute the man who killed the war veteran.
