Investigators of the Kemerovo region opened a criminal case against the driver, who is suspected of murdering his client. The crime was committed after the victim invited the taxi driver to his home.
At present, the suspect arrested. The court chose the measure of restraint in form of detention, reports the official website of the regional Department of the RF IC.
According to investigators, 43-year-old resident of the city called on the phone a taxi, then went to the store for groceries and alcohol. The driver helped her bring home purchase, after which they met and spent the evening together.
At some point, the 41-year-old taxi driver saw the phone of the mistress of the house and took him in hand. The woman made a remark to the guest, which led to a quarrel. In the end, the taxi driver strangled the victim with a rope, and then stole money, jewelry, mink coat, keyboard, mobile phone and tablet.
In the home of the victim at the time was her young son, who was sleeping. Presumably, the woman did not call anyone for help, afraid to scare the kid.
In the morning the body of a woman was found by her friend, who yesterday flew in from Germany. The man was unable to get through to Housewives and entered the dwelling through the balcony.
Investigators quickly learned that the woman went to the grocery store. Having established the identity of the suspect, investigators learned that he fled in Novokuznetsk. There the alleged killer managed to sell a few items stolen. The rest of the stolen property was seized from his car.
A criminal case was opened under part 1 article 105 (“Murder”), paragraph “C” of part 2 of article 158 (“Theft committed with causing significant harm”) of the criminal code.
