MOSCOW, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow City Court on February 19 will hand down the verdict in the case against Belarusian citizen Stepan Goncharik, found guilty by jurors of murdering his wife and stepdaughter.
Prosecution demanded 20 years in a maximum security penitentiary for Goncharik, the Court's spokeswoman Ulyana Solopova told Itar-Tass.
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 to the murder of Yevgenia Silina in June 2010, and the murder of her 16-year-old daughter Yekaterina in January 2011.
Criminal proceedings were opened after Yekaterina Silina's uncle reported the disappearance of his niece and sister.
Yekaterina Silina was a student at Moscow University's department of journalism working for the REX information agency.
