MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Prosecution demanded 20 years in prison for Stepan Goncharik found guilty by jurors of murdering his wife and stepdaughter, Moscow City Court spokeswoman Ulyana Solopova told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"During the discussion of the verdict, the prosecutor demanded 20 years for Goncharik in a maximum security penitentiary," Solopova said.Jurors had said Goncharik did not deserve clemency.
