BELGOROD, January 12. /TASS/. A doctor from central Russia’s Belgorod Region, who hit a patient to death, has been arrested until the end of February, according to a ruling by Belgorod’s Oktyabrsky District Court, a TASS correspondent reported Tuesday.
The ruling may be appealed within three days.
The doctor, Ilya Zelendinov, disagreed with the interpretation of his actions. According to a defense lawyer, the doctor did not have the intent to kill the patient. The medic told the court he repented and apologized once again to the patient’s wife.
Russian Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told TASS Tuesday that the actions of the former doctor of the Belgorod hospital were re-determined as an act to be punished more seriously, namely under Part 4 of Article 111 of Russia’s Criminal Code (inflicting grievous harm to health that entailed death by negligence), and he faces up to 15 years in prison.
Investigators said that Zelendinov, on December 29, 2015, while aware that the patient in the admissions room offers no resistance to him, hit him on the head and body. The 55-year-old man fell to the ground and hit the back of his head. He preliminarily died of cerebral edema, which was the result of a head injury.
