2 Russian Men Drunkenly Molest Young Woman's Day-Old Corpse

A court in northern Russia sentenced two men to about a year in prison for digging up a young woman's day-old corpse at a cemetery and performing sexual acts with it, the FlashNord news agency reported Monday.

Roman Filippov and Alexei Kamaliyev, both in their mid-30s, were drunk when one of them proposed going to the cemetery and taking a look at the freshly buried young woman, the news agency cited an official statement as saying.

The men "dug up the woman from her grave, ripped off her clothes and committed a number of amoral acts on her body," the statement said. DNA evidence linked the men to the crime.

Kamaliyev was sentenced to a year and four months in prison, and Filippov to a year and two months.
