MOSCOW, September 16 (RIA Novosti) – A health worker in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg is suspected of stabbing a nurse to death over “personal enmity,” investigators said Monday.
The 39-year-old nurse was found lying injured in a surgical ward at Yekaterinburg hospital number 14 on Monday morning. She was rushed to intensive care, but efforts to save her failed, the Investigative Committee said in a statement.
Investigators said that the suspect was quickly identified and detained. “He turned out to be a 30-year-old medical worker at the hospital,” investigators said.
The police are considering jealousy as a possible motive for the crime.
The suspect had a gas pistol and a hunting knife on him when he was detained, police say. If found guilty, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
