Alexei Tolstikhin Biography Alexei Tolstikhin Wiki
A Russian schoolboy collapsed after confessing why he stabbed his stepfather.
Alexei Tolstikhin, 14, stabbed his stepfather Ghenady Beloborodov with a knife on January 8.
But the prosecution ruled that he acted under duress – and therefore was not criminally responsible for his actions.
According to the Lenta news site, the boy’s mother Vera Tolstikhina and her husband Ghenady were visiting friends and had just returned home when Ghenady began to get violent.
She wanted to continue having fun and asked her wife, Alexey’s mother, to give her a bottle of vodka that she had at her house.
She refused and locked herself in a room with her one-year-old daughter. An angry ghenady would then open the door and start attacking them.
At that point, the 14-year-old boy stood up for his mother.
He picked up a knife and stabbed his stepfather several times, and the man immediately died of his injuries.
“I was sitting in an armchair on the phone. I heard a line and got up to watch, ”the boy said.
“I saw the door was broken. Ghenady then came in, sat on the bed, and started asking my mother for a bottle of alcohol. ”
The boy said that when Ghenady refused, he grabbed her by the hair and shook her violently while she was still holding her baby.
“I was really worried about my mother and Dasha (her little sister) was very scared,” Alexei said.
The boy then admitted in tears to having committed the murder and said: “Yes, I killed him.”
The relationship with his stepfather was good at first, the student said, and sometimes he even helped him with his homework.
But after losing his job, Ghenady became aggressive towards all members of the family.
On July 30, local media reported that the boy would not be jailed.
According to family lawyer Bair Ilyunov, liability for murder in emotional crisis following psychological trauma does not apply until the age of 16.
