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.
Goncharik was Yevgenia Silina's husband. He was arrested on January 13. During a questioning he confessed in the murder of Yevgenia Silina in June 2010, and her 16-year-old daughter in January 2011.
Criminal proceedings were opened after Ekaterina Silina's uncle reported the disappearance of his niece and sister.
