The last of the three suspects was detained today by police officers in the Kyiv region.
"After the murder he was hiding. He almost never went out of the house, only sometimes to the local church, apparently to pray for forgiveness for his terrible sin. In addition, he kept a gun in his room at the window, but this will not help him anymore," Abroskin said.
He added that the murderers put all three members of the family on their knees, forced them to read a prayer and killed in front of each other one by one.
