“During the hearings of the criminal case against Tashbayev the Tatar prosecutor asked life imprisonment for the defendant. The court satisfied his request,” the press secretary of the court said.
Uzbek native, resident of Naberezhnye Chelny Tashbayev was accused under four articles of the Russian Criminal Code, namely kidnapping, forcible sexual actions against a person who did not turn 14 years, rape and the murder of the underage child.
On July 12, the jury of 12 jurors has passed the guilty verdict in the criminal case against Tashbayev. The jurors voted unanimously to find him guilty on all episodes of the accusation against him.

During a large-scale search the girl was found killed on February 6. Tashbayev pointed himself to the burial place of the girl 40 kilometres away from the city on the roadside.
