MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. The Uzbek nanny accused of killing a child in her care in Moscow has been transferred to a mental ward at Moscow’s Butyrka remand prison, informed sources told Tass on Thursday.
The decision was made to transfer her from another Moscow pretrial detention facility to a psychiatric hospital at Butyrka prison placing her under the care of medics, the source said, specifying that this decision came last week.
Uzbek national Gyulchehra Bobokulova was arrested in Moscow last week on suspicion of an atrocious murder of a four-year-old girl. She told journalists in court that "Allah ordered" her to commit the brutal crime.
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.
Mental state of the nanny will be checked in a special psychiatric, psychological and drug examination.
