MOSCOW, March 4./TASS/. Charges have been brought against a nanny brutally killing a four-year-old girl in her care in Moscow, Russian Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told TASS on Friday.
"Charges were brought today against a female naitonal of a Central Asian state, born in 1977, under Part 2 of Article 105 of the Russian Criminal Code (murder of an underage)," Markin said.
According to investigators, on February 29 "after the parents [of the killed girl] and their elder child left the apartment" the 38-year-old nanny "for unknown reasons committed the murder, set the apartment on fire and escaped."
On the same day police officers detained her near the Oktyabrskoye Pole subway station, where she was walking carrying the head of the killed child and threatening others with organizing an explosion. After her detention, sappers found no explosive devices.
Investigators work to establish the motives of the crime, Markin said.
Medical condition of the nanny will be checked in a special psychiatric, psychological and drug examination, Vladimir Markin said, noting that this examination will establish her mental state.
