MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - The detectives have brought an official accusation for murder of Archpriest Pavel Adelgeim against Moscow resident Sergei Pchelintsev, 27.
The investigation department dealing with particularly important cases of the Russian Investigative Committee accused him of murder, representative of the Pskov regional investigation department Anton Dobrokhotov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The detectives believe that, on August 3, being aware that Pavel Adelgeim is a theologian and a well-known priest, the defendant came in Pskov to ask the latter for help in healing. The murder victim agreed to the guest with the feelings of compassion and charity and permitted to live in his house,” the representative said.
“On August 5, a man, suffering from hallucinations, took a knife at the kitchen and stabbed the cleric in the heart,” he added.
The detectives intend to initiate an arrest of the defendant.
Cleric of the Pskov hierarchy, Archpriest Pavel Adelgeim, who turned 75 years on August 1, was killed in his house. He became a clergyman back in the Soviet times. In 1970 he was sentenced to three years for the libel on the Soviet state system. A year later during the riots in the penitentiary he lost his right leg and was released from prison as a disabled person in 1972. Since 1976 he worked as a cleric in the Pskov hierarchy.
