Khust district court of Transcarpathian region sentenced two teenagers who brutally killed their own mother and threw her body into the river. They were sentenced to 14 years in prison, and also ordered to pay their father UAH 1.6 million in compensation.

Writes about it

According to the August 2023 verdict, the 18-year-old arranged with his 15-year-old sister to kill their mother. The incident happened back in February 2017 in Khust. According to law enforcement, the children decided to kill the mother so that she would not tell her father about the theft committed by her 15-year-old daughter.

On the night of February 19, when the woman fell asleep, the children came to her room. The 18-year-old boy began beating his mother with a wooden rolling pin, and when the children noticed that the woman did not die from the blows, the 15-year-old girl gave her brother a knife and he inflicted multiple blows on the mother's body. His sister pressed a pillow to the woman's face and held it until she died.

After the murder, the teenagers brought the woman's body to the Rika River, stripped her naked and threw her into the water. They collected bloodstained things in bags and brought them into the back room.

The son of the murdered woman partially admitted his guilt, but said that he killed his mother himself and did not negotiate with his sister about the murder. The daughter of the murdered woman pleaded not guilty and refused to testify.

The children's father said that he had been away from home for two days, from 17 to 19 February, and he had been at work. When he arrived home, he began looking for his wife, wrote a statement to the police, and then it turned out that her own children had killed her.

The judge found the defendants guilty of premeditated murder. They were sentenced to 14 years in prison, they must pay their father 800 thousand UAH for moral damage. The verdict can still be appealed.
