Three sisters stab 'mafia boss' father to death after years of torture and sexual abuse
Three teen sisters have been arrested on suspicion of killing their dad after he allegedly sexually abused them for years
After "years of torture," a sexually abusive father was reportedly stabbed by his daughters. The siblings are now facing 15 years in prison.
Mikhail Khachaturyan, a heroin-addict father of three, was allegedly murdered by his teenage daughters Angelina, 18, Maria, 17, and Krestina, 19.
His lifeless body was found near a lift inside the family's block of flats in Moscow, Russia, with several stab wounds.
The girls claimed they suffered years of harrowing sexual, physical, and emotional abuse after confessing to jointly killing their 57-year-old father, according to law enforcement.
Krestina told authorities: “We hated him and we wanted just one thing to happen – either that he disappeared or that we never knew him.
“We wanted him just to go away and never come back.”
According to the trio, Mikhail had threatened them with a knife on the day of the attack in their residence in Moscow near the Altufievskoe highway.
According to reports, while one of the sisters grabbed the knife and stabbed him, the other two joined in on the fatal attack.
Although the man tried to escape the apartment, he was attacked once again and killed near the elevator of the building.
It is being said that that the father threw his son out of the home, who is currently studying at Moscow University. According to friends and neighbors, the mother had left Mikhail due to his tyrannical abuse, reported Daily Mail.
At least one girl had been "sexually abused," according to a family friend.
She said: “He was always beating them.
“Once he took them to a forest and threatened to kill them.
“The mother ran away from him, he banned all communication with her.
“The father was linked to the criminal world, he was a kind of mafia boss.
“He never worked, and just received some payments on his credit card.”
One of the sisters, in a conversation with online news channel 112, said that Khachaturyan forced her to give him oral sex.
“The sister tried to commit suicide. After the sexual attack, she took a lot of pills but was rescued by doctors.
“The father persuaded the medics that it was not a suicide attempt but just a mistake.”
Mikhail was alleged to had been "constantly abusing" his daughters, according to a friend who spoke to online news outlet Mash on condition of anonymity.
They said: “Would you have done in a different way if you were in their shoes? When all your life is a long nightmare, full of constant traumas, physical and mental. The girls were all covered in bruises and scratches, but Mikhail was not a fool, he hit them in a way their bruises were hidden under the clothes."
“He was constantly seducing them,” they continued.
Another incident occurred when Sergei, their brother, had brought a male friend along when he came to visit his sisters.
Khachaturyan was somehow convinced that his daughters had engaged in sexual intercourse with the friend.
He shouted at them: “So you did it all together with him, all three of you?”
Mikhail was allegedly recorded on tape threatening his daughters: “You will suck all the time if you don’t go away. And if you go away, I will find you, you whores.
“All of you are whores, and you will die as whores. If you just take a risk… your mother did not take a risk. I will f*** you, and you will regret it. You won’t have time to regret. I will beat you for all, I will kill you. Go away, go away, don’t push me to sin."
Talking of the killing, the friend said: “I think it was self-defense. They would have never done it to him if not what he had been doing to them. Each of them thought about her sisters in the first place, not about herself, all of them had the same problems, all suffered in the same way.”
The 57-year-old often disallowed them from going to school, according to the sisters. A family friend, Elena, said: “Once the father found the dog hair on the carpet.
“He called one of the daughters, made her brush the dog and eat its hair, while he watched.”
According to reports, when he was away on business, Mikhail put an online camera in the apartment to spy on his daughters.
Anna, another friend of the trio, said: “The girls were afraid of their father. Their mother just ran away from him.
“He did not allow them to go out. They were so happy when he left on a trip somewhere.
“I know they would not have attacked anybody without reason.
“It means that the father was a threat to their lives.”
While another reported: “The man was always hiding his real character, he wanted to look like a holy person. His son left the home because he could not bear it. When the father was away, he came to see his sisters."
“Recently he came to visit them with his friend, and at that moment his aunt visited too and reported to the father that sisters were secretly seeing the brother. Their mother just could not live with such a man too," they continued.
“Before he was not aggressive to children, but then all changed.
“The mother started a new life, she secretly stayed in touch with her children but they did not tell her about their troubles, they wanted her to live a happy life.
“All the girls are very kind-hearted and generous, they would always help you.”
The brother, Sergei, 21, was quoted by REN television saying: “My sisters just could not have done it.
“I don’t know what happened. I don’t know who to believe. I have not lived there since I was 16.
“He forced our mother to leave too, but I do not know what for. He wanted me to grow up a strong man.
“If he was beating anyone it does not mean he was a bad person.”
Authorities reportedly found two kilograms of heroin along with an arsenal of a smooth bore rifle, three pneumatic handguns, a signal gun, a gas gun, and a pneumatic rifle in Mikhail's Audi Q7.
The three sisters have now been charged with murder and are sentenced to a maximum penalty of 10 to 15 years in jail, according to state news agency TASS, which cited the Investigative Committee, in charge of probing serious crimes.
“Investigators have accused three daughters in murdering their father at the North-East of Moscow,” said spokeswoman Yulia Ivanova.
“During the interrogation, all the girls confessed their guilt and explained that they had hostile relations with their father due to the moral sufferings he had inflicted on them over a long period.”
