I will say everything in court.» A woman, identified as Elena Karimova, confessed to strangling her two young children to death, at a hearing in the Moscow District Court of Nizhny Novgorod on Saturday. According to the regional Investigative Committee, the woman allegedly strangled her four-year old daughter and two-year old son in the back seat of a rented car on April 25. On the same day, the defendant allegedly attempted to get rid of the dead bodies. She reportedly bought a lighter fluid at a gas station, drove to the forest and set the bodies on fire. Fearing that she could have been seen by hunters, she allegedly knocked down the flames with water, put the bodies back into the vehicle and returned to Nizhny Novgorod. The next day, she reportedly took the bodies to the Semenovsky district of Nizhny Novgorod Region, where she once again set them alight in an abandoned building and then fled the scene. The defendant reportedly said that she had committed the crime because she could not financially support her children. She is believed to be divorced and unemployed. The woman spent more than 40,000 rubles (€530/$643) a month to rent a car and, shortly before allegedly killing her children, she booked a tour abroad, according to investigators. A criminal case has been opened to investigate the violent killing of two young children. Karimova has been detained as a suspect for a period of two months. Prior to the hearing, Karimova said that she regrets the crime; however, she did not provide further details, saying, «I will say everything in court.»
