Woman Kills 11-Year-Old Son For Changing Internet Settings

A Russian woman who killed her 11-year-old son then chopped up his body because he changed her Internet settings has been sentenced to nearly 13 years in prison, investigators have said.

The 34-year-old woman from Ufa confessed to investigators that she smacked the boy several times with a rolling pin as punishment because his action prevented her from going online.

When she realized that he was dead, she decided to dismember his body and hide it in an abandoned cellar near their home, she told authorities.

However, investigators believe that the boy died not from blunt trauma but from a series of stab wounds.

The mother was sentenced to 12 years, 10 months in a penal colony on Monday after a psychiatric evaluation deemed that she was fit to stand trial.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
