17-year Old Model Stabbed To Death 189 Times By Envious Sister (photos)
A woman is to face trial for the brutal murder of her naked 17-year-old model sister whose eyes were gouged out and ears hacked off.
Stefania Dubrovina was stabbed 189 times in a frenzied attack in the Russian city St Petersburg.
Her sister Elizaveta, 22, is accused of hacking the model to death in an 'envious' drug-filled rage, and faces up to 25 years in jail if convicted.
Elizaveta was detained for the horrific killing in 2016 but was sent for compulsory psychiatric treatment.
She is now deemed fit to face trial which is due to start soon.
She strongly denies the murder charge and new reports say she will instead accuse the dead girl's 'lover' Alexey Fateev, now 44, in whose flat her sister died.
However, the prosecuting authorities say the man is a witness and not under any suspicion.
Elizaveta, aged 19 at the time of the killing, is charged with 'murder with particular cruelty'.
Fateev has denied on Russian TV that he had anything to do with Stefania's death.
He told how he found Stefania's massacred naked body after returning from a shop where he bought wine.
He detained Elizaveta to stop her fleeing before handing her over to police, he said.
