Nanny ad­mits be­head­ing dis­abled child in her charge

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A MOSCOW nanny pleaded guilty to mur­der­ing the four-year-old dis­abled child in her charge af­ter bran­dish­ing the child’s sev­ered head on the street.

“I plead guilty; that’s what she said,” an in­ter­preter said as Uzbek na­tional Gy­ulchekhra Bobokulova went on trial.

In a chill­ing case, Ms Bobokulova was ar­rested in Fe­bru­ary as she waved the sev­ered head of four-year-old Anas­ta­sia out­side a Moscow metro sta­tion.

The girl’s head­less body was later found in the fam­ily’s flat, which had been set on fire.

The pros­e­cu­tor at Moscow’s Khoro­shevsky district court read out the charges that 39-year-old Ms Bobokulova had stran­gled Anas­ta­sia, who had cere­bral palsy, and then be­headed her.

Wit­nesses said that the nanny paced for around 20 min­utes on the street dressed in black, wav­ing the sev­ered head and threat­en­ing to blow her­self up.

In March, at her first court ap­pear­ance fol­low­ing her ar­rest, Ms Bobokulova said that “it was what Al­lah or­dered”, speak­ing in bro­ken Rus­sian.
