Nanny admits beheading disabled child in her charge
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.
