Arrests in Village Slaughter

Four men implicated in a mass killing that left 12 dead in the Krasnodar region village of Kushchyovskaya were arrested by a local court Friday, RIA-Novosti reported, citing an Investigative Committee spokesman.

The suspects were earlier identified as brothers Alexei Gurov, 24, and Yevgeny Gurov, 20, as well as Igor Maidanyuk, 16, and Vyacheslav Skachedub, 17, all local residents. Investigators have not given a motive but said there was evidence of the four’s involvement.

The family of local farmer Serever Ametov was killed in their own home last Friday along with two neighbors and the family of a Rostov-on-Don entrepreneur, Vladimir Mironenko.
