The Primorskiy District Court refused to grant the request for the detention of a schoolgirl, who is accused of murdering her grandmother, due to lack of materials to initiate a criminal case.
According to the press service of the St. Petersburg courts, the investigation did not provide documents on the inspection of the crime scene, the discovery of a body with signs of violent death and the presence of criminal causes of death. In this regard, the circumstances “deprived the court of the opportunity to discuss the validity and legality of initiating a criminal case, arresting a minor and bringing charges against her.
In addition, they added in the press service, it is impossible to verify the involvement of a 15-year-old schoolgirl in the crime. Within three days, the decision can be appealed to the St. Petersburg City Court. The girl herself does not admit guilt and refused to testify.
Earlier it was reported that on the Lanskoe highway in St. Petersburg on October 14, a schoolgirl inflicted multiple knife wounds on her grandmother. The investigation believes that the minor did this because of “the emergence of personal hostile relations.” Pensioner born in 1942 died of her injuries, and her granddaughter was charged with the woman’s murder.
