Moscow poisoning case defendant detained for 2 months
MOSCOW, June 27 (RAPSI) – The Tagansky District Court has ordered Murat Sabanov, who stands charged with poisoning and robbing people in central Moscow, to be placed in detention until August 25, a RAPSI correspondent has reported.
The defendant has objected to detention.
According to investigators, May through June, over 20 young adults disguised with drink became victims of poisoning and robbing in central Moscow. They were wined with cold drinks which caused the loss of consciousness and then the victims were robbed.
Police arrested Sabanov, the 26-year-old native of Russia’s Kabardino Balkariya, on June 25. During searches pharma drugs containing tranquillizers were found on him.
When giving his first testimony, Sabanov pleaded guilty in full but later during a court hearing he admitted guilt in part.
