The court found the heir of the late actress guilty of killing his mother.
In early February last year, news appeared in the media about the tragic death of the Soviet actress Alexandra Zavyalova, whose popularity came after filming in the film "Alyoshkina Love" and TV series "Shadows Disappear at Noon". Journalists reported that the artist was killed on the eve of her 80th birthday in her apartment in St. Petersburg by her own 40-year-old son Peter, who suffered from alcoholism.
And recently, the press reported that the court found the heir of the late actress guilty and sentenced him to eight years in a strict regime colony. Petr was under arrest for a year while the investigation process was going on. As it turned out, the son de alt with the actress while intoxicated. “On the night of February 3, 2016, in an apartment building on Gavrskaya Street, on the basis of a sudden personal hostile relationship, Zavyalov stabbed his mother with a knife. She died on the spot,” the press service of the prosecutor’s office noted.
Pyotr's lawyer, Valentin Pyshkin, told Komsomolskaya Pravda that he was going to appeal the court's decision - after all, his client does not agree with this state of affairs and does not consider himself guilty. “My client does not admit guilt and does not associate himself with these events in any way,” the lawyer said.
