TULA, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— A man who killed a family of five, including three minors, in August 2011 has been sentenced to life in a high-security penal colony, according to a verdict passed by the Tula regional court on Saturday.
Five dead bodies – three children aged five, six, and nine, their mother and grandmother – were found in an apartment in a multi-storeyd residential house in Tula, central European Russia. The court found the man, Ivan Ivanchenko, guilty of the murder.
According to the court, Iavnchenko killed the young woman, Maria Skarupa, after she refused to have sex with him. He committed the murder when the woman was sleeping, then he murdered Sharupa’s mother and children. He delivered at least ten hammer blows on the heads of each of them. Then he put the dead bodies in the bathroom and tried to wash out his traces. In order to confuse investigators he took away valuables from the apartment.
Experts proved he had been of sound mind at the moment. Ivanchenko was accused of murder (part 2, article 105 of the Russian Criminal Code) and theft (part 2, article 158).
Apart from that, the court ruled that Ivanchenko must pay four and five million roubles to Skarupa’s father and husband, respectively.
Ivanchenko however pleaded not guilty.
