Man 'raped and killed by parents' after daughter 'joked he molested her'
An ‘innocent’ man was allegedly raped and battered to death by ‘vigilante’ parents after a 10-year-old girl ‘lied’ he had molested her ‘as a joke’.
The girl claimed truck driver Dmitry Chikvarkin, 48, had touched her and another girl, 3, ‘below the waist’ after he gave them a lift to their carer in the town of Verkhnyaya Pyshma in Russia.
Her dad Sergey Chabin, 33, and his girlfriend Valeria Dunaeva, 25, mother to the other child, are accused of gathering three male friends to attack Mr Chikvarkin after hearing the story.
Police in Verkhnyaya Pyshma told Znak newspaper: ‘They found the man who previously gave a lift to the children.
‘First, he was raped… then they smashed his head with the same pipe, breaking his skull..’
A woman who had cared for the children – an aunt of Dunaeva’s ex-husband – was also allegedly attacked as she tried to protect Chikvarkin.
The truck driver, who was father to a little girl, 6, was alive when the group left but died later from head wounds, authorities said.
A friend told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: ‘He just wanted to help by giving the kids a lift, but he was killed. He would never harm children.’
Dunaeva and Chabin, along with an alleged accomplice Mikhail Ivanov, 27, were both arrested after officers determined the girl, 10, made up the accusation ‘as a joke’.
They are charged with ‘murder with special cruelty by a group of persons by prior conspiracy’, according to Russian reports.
Two men accused of taking part in the incident are reportedly on the run.
The four men face life sentences if convicted, while Dunaeva could receive up to 20 years in prison.
