In the Ivano-Frankivsk region, a 24-year-old girl was convicted of murdering her uncle. She will spend the next eight years in prison.
The incident occurred in February 2021. The girl was at home when her 51-year-old uncle visited her.
Being in a state of strong alcoholic intoxication, he decided to find out the relationship with his niece. The man rudely demanded the money that she allegedly borrowed from him.
When the girl said that there was no way to pay off now, her uncle threatened her with force. Outraged by this behavior, the niece grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him eight times.
The medical examiner found that a 51-year-old man died as a result of injuries before the ambulance arrived.
Criminal proceedings were opened under part 1 of Article 115 (Premeditated murder) Criminal Code of Ukraine. It is not reported whether the girl’s actions were considered self-defense.
