Kaliningrad, February 21 – A court in Kaliningrad sentenced a man who killed a pregnant disabled woman in 2009 to 20 years in a strict regime colony, the press office of the SUSK RF region told reporters.
“The evidence convinced the jury that Shchman Erkinov is guilty of an offense under Paragraph ‘d’ of Part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (murder of a woman who was clearly pregnant to the offender),” the press service said.
The investigation found that in November 2009, Shakman Erkinov had a fight with his pregnant companion, strangled her and threw her body into a sewage well in the courtyard of the house where the woman lived. The body of the deceased was found only in February 2010 by the investigation team during the investigation. For a long time, the crime remained unsolved, but later the investigation managed to obtain sufficient evidence of Erkenov’s involvement in the murder.
Sosk said that after the murder of his comrade, Erkinov moved to the Stavropol Territory, where in June 2010, as part of a group of people, he committed the murder of an investigator of the military investigation unit of the Investigative Committee of Russia, along with a robbery. Hiding from law enforcement agencies, he left for Ukraine, from where he was extradited to Russia and in 2012 he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for this crime, and he served his sentence in one of the colonies of the Stavropol Territory.
“According to the verdict of the Kaliningrad Regional Court, Erkinov was sentenced to 20 years in prison with service in a strict correctional colony, with restriction of liberty for a period of 1 year and 6 months,” the administration said.
It is noteworthy that during the trial, Erkinov partially admitted his guilt, stating that he knew about the cohabitant’s pregnancy. The ruling has not entered into force.
