A mafia boss was stabbed to death by his three daughters after apparently torturing and sexually abusing them for years, it has emerged.
Teenagers Kristina, 19, Angelina, 18 and Maria, 17 has since been charged with the murder of their 57-year-old father Mikhail Khachaturyan in Moscow.
The horrific alleged abuse the girls suffered has been revealed after their father’s body was discovered with ‘dozens’ of stab wounds inside the family’s flat.
Moscow police told reporters each sister confessed to killing Mikhail as a joint effort, saying they survived years of egregious abuse at the hands of the alleged heroin addict.
If found guilty, they could be looking at 15 years in jail.
Kristina reportedly told police, as per the Metro:
We hated him and we wanted just one thing to happen, either that he disappeared or that we never knew him.
We wanted him to just go away and never come back.
They claim on the day of the stabbing, Mikhail had threatened them himself with a knife in their flat nearby to the Altufievskoe highway in the Russian capital.
It was just one of the sisters he made the first move, with the other two joining in shortly after, reports say.
Mikhail made a desperate attempt to flee the flat was attacked again, later dying near the lift.
Friends and neighbours have claimed he was ‘tyrannical’ and that such was the extent of his abuse, that was wife left him. A son, now studying at Moscow University, had been ‘thrown out’ by the dad.
A family friend, who claims she knew at least one of his daughter’s had been ‘sexually abused’, said:
He was always beating them. Once he took them to a forest and threatened to kill them.
The mother ran away from him, he banned all communication with her.
The father was linked to the criminal world. He was a kind of mafia boss.
He never worked, and just received some payments on his credit card.
21-year-old son to Mikhail, Sergei, was quoted as saying:
My sisters just could not have done it.
I don’t know what happened. I don’t know who to believe. I have not lived since I was 16.
Police apparently found two kilograms of heroin and an arsenal of weapons in Mikhail’s Audi Q7.
When a boy came over to the flat, he allegedly flipped out on his daughters, accusing them of sleeping with him.
A source said as per The Sun:
Would you have done in a different way if you were in their shoes? When all your life is a long nightmare, full of constant traumas, physical and mental.
The girls were all covered in bruises and scratches, but Mikhail was not a fool, he hit them in a way their bruises were hidden under the clothes.
Mikhail reportedly threatened the girls:
You will suck all the time if you don’t go away. And if you go away, I will find you, you whores.
If you just take a risk… your mother did not take a risk. I will f*** you and you will regret it. You won’t have time to regret.
I will beat you for all, I will kill you. Go away, go away, don’t push me to sin.
If sentenced, the girls will face a maximum of 10 to 15 years imprisonment.
