Russian woman kills elderly neighbour with bra
Tuesday 21 August 2012
A woman has strangled her elderly neighbour with her bra, Russian investigators said today.
The 26-year-old woman, from the town of Zakamensk, in eastern Siberia, just miles from the border with Mongolia, has been charged with murder, the Investigative Committee in Buryatia said in a statement.
Investigators said the woman was drunk when she and her boyfriend asked their 65-year-old neighbour for money to buy drinks one evening in July.
When he refused to lend them any cash, the woman punched him in the face and tried to strangle him with her hands, before taking off her bra and strangling him with it, they said.
The woman, who has not been named, is now in custody awaiting the end of the investigation.
