The public prosecutor in the trial of a Homyel woman accused of organizing a double murder on April 19 asked the Homyel Regional Court to sentence the woman to 12 years in prison.
The accused, who is named Alena, is believed to have asked her ex-husband to kill her current husband’s former spouse and their 11-year-old daughter because she feared that the man might return to them.
Alena promised her former husband that she would not sue him for not paying child support if he committed the murder.
The man agreed but then contacted the police to tell them about the woman’s plans.
The man was advised to tell Alena that he had killed the pair. As soon as he did so, the woman called a court officer and said that she was no longer interested in suing her ex-husband for failure to pay child support.
A judgment in the case is expected to be pronounced on May 3.
The accused has two children. Her older child is being brought up by her former husband, while her younger child is being brought up by her current husband.
