The two teenagers suspected of committing the murder of a 14-year-old girl have been escorted to Straseni District Court and prosecutors issued warrants for their arrest.
The lawyer for one of the minors said that his client does not plead guilty and that he was only a witness to what happened. Allegedly, the main culprit is the young man who fled to Romania.
On the other hand, the lawyer of the victim’s former boyfriend says that the boy partially admits his guilt, but he does not remember how it all happened because of the advanced state of intoxication.
Mothers of the two boys were also present in the court, but they refused to talk to the press.
Recall that the murdered girl was announced missing on 25 November. Yesterday, she was found dead in a house under construction in the same locality.
All in all, police detained three young men suspected of committing the murder. They are 13 to 16 year-old. The 13 year-old boy cannot be detained. Another suspect, aged 17, had fled to Romania to study. According to protv.md, prosecutors contacted his parents, asking them to bring their son before prosecutors. If the young man does not show up, prosecutors will announced him in international search.
However, one of the boys had an intimate relationship with the victim. According to the available information, the victim's ex-boyfriend is a friend of the perpetrator, who robbed a bank in Straseni a week ago.
According to the prosecutors, the young men repeatedly hit the girl in the head with boards and bricks, which caused her death. Blows were inflicted after an argument that had occurred between the victim and one of the boys. It was also found that young people consumed alcohol.
Prosecutors claim that the teenagers have admitted their guilt and described in detail how they had committed the crime.
Local authorities say that the four teenagers were supervised by the social worker, as they came from socially vulnerable families. Three of the suspects were previously investigated by police for thefts and robberies.
If found guilty, the adolescents risk to spend the rest of their life behind bars.
