MOSCOW (Reuters) – A Russian serial killer who butchered his nine victims with a knife and hammer, and said he ate the hearts of two of them, was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.
Prosecutors said Alexander Bychkov targeted alcoholics and the homeless out of disdain for their way of life, lured them into deserted areas, killed them, dismembered them and hid the body parts.
They said he described all nine killings in a journal with the words: “The bloody hunt of a predator born in the year of the dragon,” state-run news agency RIA reported.
A court in the Penza region convicted the 24-year-old, who sometimes called himself “Rambo”, of nine murders between September 2009 and January 2012.
Bychkov was arrested last year on suspicion of stealing 10,000 roubles ($ 320) and merchandise from a hardware store, but was charged with the murders after investigators found evidence.
RIA said he told authorities he had eaten the hearts of two victims, but he was not charged over that because there was no evidence to prove it. ($ 1 = 30.8955 Russian roubles)

MEXICO CITY |
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Reports that a woman in northern Mexico is pregnant with nine babies are a hoax, health authorities said on Friday.
Mexico’s main broadcaster Televisa and top daily newspapers ran stories about a woman expecting nonuplets late on Thursday after she provided welfare officials with supposed evidence of the multiple pregnancy, including an ultrasound video, said a spokesman for the health ministry of Coahuila state.
Following the news, local health authorities offered assistance to the woman, who was identified as 32-year-old Karla Perez from Villa Arteaga, east of the state capital Saltillo.
Reports said Perez had conceived the babies after receiving fertility treatment, but tests carried out by doctors on Friday revealed she was not even pregnant. It was not clear why the mother of three had made the claims, the spokesman added.
MEXICO CITY |
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A Mexican woman is pregnant with nine babies – six girls and three boys – the country’s main broadcaster Televisa reported on Thursday night.
The woman was identified as Karla Vanessa Perez of the northeastern state of Coahuila, which borders Texas. She is currently being treated at a hospital in the state capital Saltillo, the broadcaster said in the report.
Perez, whose age was not given, had fertility treatment leading to the multiple pregnancy, it said.
State-owned news agency Notimex also reported the pregnancy, saying Perez was due to give birth on May 20.
“It’s very early to think of names for the babies,” Perez told Notimex. “First I hope that everything goes well.”
The successful delivery of nonuplets would be one of the highest multiple births ever recorded.
In 2009, a woman in California gave birth to octuplets, sparking worldwide media attention.
