A woman from Russia has confessed to killing her 18-year-old daughter because she claimed the teenager argued too much.
Tatiana Degirmendzhy 49, reportedly attacked her daughter Yulia while she was asleep with an axe in their home in the city of Chaykovsky in Russia's Perm Krai region.
The mother reportedly hit her sleeping daughter several times with the axe, severing an artery in the teenager's neck in the process.
Local media reports the mother fled the scene, going to a railway station and catching the first train leaving the town. Police then searched the crime scene and discovered that Tatiana’s passport had disappeared and the mother was declared wanted.
She was found within 24 hours trying to board a train in the city of Izhevsk 36 miles from Chaykovsky. The victim was discovered several hours later by her older brother Sertan Degirmendzhy, 22, who had returned home from a walk.
The young man found his sister lying motionless in her room, with blood all over the bed and walls. He reportedly discovered the blood-covered axe lying on the floor near the bed, and immediately called emergency services Daily Mail reports.
According to police, the mother has confessed to murdering her daughter saying “If I had had seven daughters like her [Yulia], I would have killed them all.”
A police spokesperson commenting on the matter said: 'The investigation found that during the last three months the suspect and the victim had been constantly in domestic conflicts. The suspect said she committed the murder on the basis of personal dislike.”
Tatiana faces 15 years in prison if found guilty. This is coming after a Nigerian woman named Bose Ogedengbe was arrested by police for brutalising a 13-year-old girl.
