Man whips his daughter to death over pain-killing medication
A court in the republic of Yakutia opened a criminal case against the man, who brutally beat his daughter. The case was filed under article "intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm, dangerous to human life, committed against a minor". It was established that in early April, the 35-year-old man, being in a state of alcoholic intoxication, decided that his 5-year-old daughter took a pill of analgin (a pain-killing medication) without asking her father. For "educational purposes," the father took a cord from an electric device and whipped the girl into unconsciousness. The same day, the victim was taken to hospital in critical condition. Doctors were fighting for the lives of the child for two weeks, but to no avail. Having lived through two clinical deaths, on April 21st of this year, the girl died without regaining consciousness. The criminal case was reclassified under "intentional infliction of serious bodily injury that resulted in victim's death." However, the indictment was delayed: having learned about the death of his daughter, the accused decided to commit suicide by slitting his throat. Doctors saved the man.
