A Russian man is about to go on trial accused of killing at least eight women in a series of murders and rapes in at least ten regions of the country, investigators said on Wednesday.
Sergei Martynov committed the crimes between 2005 and 2010, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said.
“Martynov’s victims were mostly women and two young girls, in respect of one of them Martynov committed a sexual assault and he caused serious harm to another,” Markin said.
Martynov had already served 14 years for a murder involving rape in 1992. After being released, he began to kill again.
In addition to murder and sexual assault charges, Martynov is also accused of other crimes including grievous harm and disorderly conduct. He faces potential life imprisonment.
