Woman Suspected of Killing Housemate With TV Remote

A woman in the Perm region has been detained on suspicion of killing a man with a television remote.

A murder case has been opened against the 59-year-old woman, who is thought to have asphyxiated the 46-year-old man she lived with, the regional Investigative Committee said Monday in a statement.

According to preliminary investigations in the region's Nytvensky district, the man and the woman started fighting on Thursday after drinking spirits. During the argument the woman is suspected of forcing the television remote into the mouth of the man, causing him to suffocate.

Investigators said that attempts to establish all the circumstances of the incident are ongoing.

The woman faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
