YEKATERINBURG, January 17 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators in the Sverdlovsk region have completed the probe into the criminal case against a 40-year-old resident of the town of Krasnoufimsk, accused of a series of murders of elderly women.
"The woman is accused of seventeen counts of murder and robberies, one robbery and attempted destruction of property by arson, the press service of the regional department of the Investigative committee (SK) told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"According to the criminal case materials, she committed a series of attacks on elderly women aged 61 to 89 in Krasnoufimsk, Serov, Yekaterinburg and the village of Achit, in the period from 2002 through 2010. In each attack, the woman rang the bell of the victim's apartment, who lived alone, entered it and delivered fatal blows on the victim’s head. Then she stole the victim's money. In some cases, she tried to cover the signs of her crime and set the apartments on fire by leaving irons on or opening gas taps, but fires were avoided thanks to vigilant neighbors," the press service said.
More than 3,000 witnesses and 21 victims were questions during the investigation. The case was sent to the Sverdlovsk region prosecutor's office for endorsing the indictment. The prosecutors will refer it to a court.
