Teenage Serial Killer Jailed for 10 Years

August 7, 2006

Russia’s Chelyabinsk city court has sentenced serial killer Dmitriy Kopilov to ten years imprisonment, the maximum penalty for an underaged person in Russia.

“A 17 year-old citizen of Chelyabinsk city (South Ural region) has been sentenced to ten years in a penal colony for several murders and robbery,” a press-service representative of the local Prosecutor General’s Office told the Interfax news agency.

An investigation revealed that Kopilov had killed and robbed six women and a man who had accidentally witnessed the last woman’s murder. The juvenile killer “worked” from July 2004 to August 2005.

Kopilov shadowed lonely women, attacked and robbed them, and then dragged them by the head and ears to a nearby forest and cruelly murdered them. He used a knife, stones, a metal rod, pieces of pipe and even animal bones to kill his victims.

Prosecutors claim he took off his victims’ jewellery and money. In one case he could get just 50 rubles ($1,87). The court’s verdict says Kopilov was sane.
