Russian court imprisons 2 men for murdering, eating 16-year-old girl

ST. PETERSBURG (AP) — A Russian court has convicted two men of murdering and eating a 16-year-old schoolgirl in January.

The St. Petersburg City Court says it sentenced a 21-year-old Goth-rock musician to 19 years in a maximum-security prison.

It says his 20-year-old accomplice was sentenced to 18 years in a maximum-security prison.

The court says in a statement released Wednesday that the musician lured his victim to his apartment building, where he and his friend drowned her in a bathtub and cooked parts of her body in an oven.

The men pleaded not guilty, and in earlier testimony they said they had killed the woman because they "were hungry."
