NOVOSIBIRSK, November 10. /TASS/. A man in the Siberian town of Ob may face up to 15 years in prison for killing his friend with a chocolate bar, the press service of the local prosecutor’s office said on Monday.
The incident took place in June 2014, when the 40-year-old man, who already had criminal record, and his friend, both drunk, fell out and started a brawl. The man knocked down his friend, kicking and beating him up. Then, he took a chocolate bar and thrust it into his friend’s throat. Unable to breathe, the man’s friend died instantly.
