Coca-Cola factory director murder case reaches St. Petersburg court
MOSCOW, August 31 (RAPSI) – Dmitry Soshnev murder case has been submitted to court, RIA Novosti reported, citing the Investigative Committee.
The Investigative Committee’s Main Department for St. Petersburg has completed its investigation into the murder of Soshnev, the director of a Coca Cola factory.
Denis Chkhitauri and Vyacheslav Finogenov stand charged with murder, assault with intent to rob, document theft and trafficking in drug and weapons.
“Investigators have collected substantive proof and have sent the case to court for trial,” the Investigative Committee said in a statement.
Investigators have established that Soshnev met with Chkhitauri and Finogenov, who had a murder record, on December 28, 2014. The suspects lured him to a garage area in the Frunzensky District, where Finogenov allegedly shot Soshnev with a shotgun.
“The suspects took the victim’s money (about 160,000 rubles or $2,500) and his BMW registration documents, which they planned to sell for 1 million rubles (about $15,000),” according to the Investigative Committee.
