A panel of judges of the Mahilioŭ Regional Court on January 10 imposed death sentences on Ilja Koscieŭ, 21, and his 19-year-old brother Stanislaŭ after finding them guilty of brutally murdering a school teacher.

Ilja and Stanislaŭ Koscieŭ, residents of Čerykaŭ, a small city in the Mahilioŭ region, are said to have stabbed their former teacher to death on April 10, 2018.

The brothers are believed to have killed the 47-year-old woman in revenge, after she complained to the police that their sister, a mother of two small children, was neglecting her maternal duties.

According to the prosecution, the two brothers drank alcohol at home and then headed to the teacher’s house. They stabbed her more than 100 times with a knife, stole a computer and some food items, and set the house on fire.
