ABAKAN, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Khakasia's Supreme Court on Wednesday sentenced three local residents to life in prison, finding them guilty of the first degree murder of three Chinese women. The fourth defendant, who was their accomplice, was sentenced to 16 years in jail, a court official told Itar-Tass.
The investigator said the murder was committed in May 2013. The four Khakasia residents were drinking alcohol at the Tashiba station where vegetable greenhouses were located. "Upon seeing three Chinese women working there, they forced them into a car and drove them away from the greenhouses. Then they raped them, took away their jewelry and killed them. "All the defendants have previous convictions for thefts and car thefts," a prosecutor said.
When considering the punishment, the court took into account the degree of public danger of the committed crimes, the defendants' personalities, the previous crimes they committed and the role each played in the group. "Its conclusion was that three convicts posed exceptional danger to the society," the press service said.
