In August, authorities announced that suspected serial killer Alexander Pichushkin, dubbed "Bitsevsky maniac" by the media, had confessed to committing at least 62 murders. Pichushkin is now asking that another 11 victims be added to his tally. During a recent court appearance, Pichushkin told the court, "A first killing is like your first love. You never forget it," adding, "In all the cases I killed for only one reason. I killed in order to live, because when you kill, you want to live." To date, prosecutors have charged Pichushkin with 49 murders and three attempted murders; however, Pichushkin is unsatisfied with that number. "I thought it would not be fair to forget about the other 11 people," he told the court. Pichushkin was arrested last year after police connected him to a string of murders in southern Moscow. During his interrogation, Pichushkin told investigators that he had planned to kill 64 people, one for each square on a chessboard.

MOSCOW - A Moscow court on Monday sentenced a man convicted of 48 murders, which he recorded on a chessboard, to life imprisonment, ending one of Russia's worst serial killing cases. The sentence for Alexander Pichushkin, who claimed to have killed 60 people in an effort to fill all 64 squares of the board, was the severest possible under Russian law and met prosecutors' request. Pichushkin stood in a reinforced glass cage with his hands cuffed behind his back while the judge read the sentence for 45 minutes. When judge Vladimir Usov asked Pichushkin whether he understood the sentence, the defendant replied: "I'm not deaf." Pichushkin will also have to undergo psychiatric treatment at the prison. Previously, experts at Russia's main psychiatric clinic had found Pichushkin sane. A jury found Pichushkin guilty on Wednesday after deliberating slightly more than two hours. Pichushkin said Thursday he had killed 60 people and that three attempts had failed. However, prosecutors could only find evidence for 48 murders. The jury also found Pichushkin guilty of three attempted murders. Most of Pichushkin's victims were killed in the sprawling Bittsa Park in southern Moscow from 2001 until his arrest in 2006. Prosecutors said Pichushkin lured his victims — many of them homeless, alcoholic and elderly — by promising them vodka if they would join him in mourning the death of his dog. They said he killed 11 people in 2001, including six in one month. He killed most of his victims by throwing them into a sewage pit after they were drunk, and in a few cases strangled or hit them in the head, prosecutors said. Beginning in 2005, he began to kill with "particular cruelty," hitting his intoxicated victims multiple times in the head with a hammer, then sticking an unfinished bottle of vodka into their shattered skulls, prosecutors said. He also no longer tried to conceal the bodies. The country's most notorious serial killer was Andrei Chikatilo, who was convicted in 1992 of killing 52 children and young women in 12 years.
seriously: I think Obama should have made them liquidate all their assets both business AND PERSONAL so they could climb over their own pile of s***; instead of expecting the American tax payers to do it.
