Russian woman kills daughter after Turkish husband abandons them
Tatiana (L) and her daughter, Julia.
A woman in Russia’s Ural reigion has been charged with the brutal murder of her daughter soon after her Turkish husband abandoned them.
Turkish daily Vatan reported on Aug. 14 that the 49-year-old woman, identified only as Tatiana, confessed to have killed her 18-year-old daughter Julia with an axe while she was asleep at their home in the town of Chaykovsky in Perm Krai.
Citing Russian media, the Turkish daily added the prosecutors said the murder came soon after a quarrel between the mother and the daughter.
The suspect, who was arrested in the town of Izhevsk the following day, reportedly showed no remorse as she displayed signs of psychological problems.
A friend of the family told the Russian press that the woman was working in a number of jobs to support her kids, who were abandoned by the Turkish father shortly after the couple married in the town where they met.
Tatiana’s son, identified as Sertan Değirmenci, pleaded for help to organize a funeral ceremony for his sister, whom he found dead.
