MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow Dorogomilovsky Court ordered compulsory therapy of Nikolai Shadrin, a Muscovite suspected of robbery and murder.
“The court ordered compulsory therapy of Shadrin in a mental health clinic,” court press secretary Sergei Dvorak told Itar-Tass.
He said the court found him guilty of murder (Part 1, Article 105 of the Russian Criminal Code) and robbery (Part 1, Article 161 of the Criminal Code). “The court found him guilty of the crimes but substituted imprisonment with compulsory therapy,” Dvorak said, adding that psychiatrists declared Shadrin mentally ill.
The cannibal was seized in western Moscow in May 2011. He killed his acquaintance, cooked his internal organs and disposed of the rest of the body in various districts of the city. Shadrin had been a patient of a mental health clinic before.
The defense argued that the victim died a natural death and the suspect was not guilty of murder. The lawyer did not deny though that the defendant consumed part of the victim’s body as food.
