MOSCOW, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Investigators have completed a preliminary inquiry into a criminal case against Orkhan Zeynalov, accused of a high-profile murder in southeast Moscow last year, Zeynalov’s lawyer said Tuesday.
“Preliminary investigation into the case has been completed. We begin to familiarize ourselves with the case materials,” lawyer Viktor Anikushkin said.
Anikushkin said his client was ruled to be sane after a mental examination. “Zeynalov does not admit his guilt,” the lawyer said.
Muscovite Yegor Shcherbakov, 25, was killed early on October 10, 2013, in Moscow’s Zapadnoye Biryulyovo district. During a conflict with an unknown man, Shcherbakov was stabbed in his heart with a knife and died. On October 13, local residents gathered in the district. They demanded that the authorities find and punish the killer. Their gathering turned into riots, and 400 people were detained.
A suspect in the murder, 30-year-old Zeynalov, a national of Azerbaijan, was detained in the town of Kolomna in the Moscow Region soon afterwards. He was charged with “murder out of hooligan motives”.
