An Uzbek national who gruesomely murdered a girl in her care by
beheading and parading her head in the street has confessed.
A Moscow nanny who beheaded a four-year-old disabled girl has
confessed and admitted she did it.
The woman on Monday pleaded guilty to murdering the four-year-old
disabled child in her charge after brandishing the child’s severed
head on the street, AFP reports.
“I plead guilty; that’s what she said,” an interpreter said as Uzbek
national Gyulchekhra Bobokulova went on trial, Interfax news agency
The incident which happened in February left many in deep shock
after Bobokulova waved the severed head of four-year-old Anastasia
outside a Moscow metro station.
The girl’s headless body was later found in the family’s flat, which
had been set on fire. The prosecutor at Moscow’s Khoroshevsky
district court read out the charges that 39-year-old Bobokulova had
strangled Anastasia, who had cerebral palsy, and then beheaded her.
The prosecutor further stated that she used an oil lamp to set the
apartment ablaze and went outside carrying the child’s head.
Witnesses said that the nanny paced for around 20 minutes on the
street dressed in black, waving the severed head and threatening to
blow herself up.
Russia’s national television channels refused to cover the grisly
killing in a controversial move that the Kremlin defended, saying the
subject was “probably too monstrous to be shown on television.”
Her trial is being covered by state television, however. At her first
court appearance in March, Bobokulova said what she did “was what
Allah ordered,” speaking in broken Russian.
Bobokulova is being held in custody at a psychiatric hospital within
Moscow’s ageing Butyrka jail. It has been revealed that she is
suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Prosecutors will ask for her to
be incarcerated in a high-security psychiatric facility.
She is charged with the murder of a minor, which carries a maximum
sentence of 25 years in prison, as well as arson and making a false
report of an explosion.
