A terrible crime shocked the capital of Romania. A 54-year-old woman, a lawyer, was burned alive by her nephew (33), angry that the victim did not want to transfer the apartment to him, according to Romanian media.
Neighbors intervened in the quarrel, trying to escape the unfortunate woman, but to no avail. After the crime, he ran away, but was soon caught.
Liliana Popa (54) was attacked by a relative on the stairs of an apartment block in Sector 6 in Bucharest. Police say the man came prepared to commit a crime.
He faces up to 25 years in prison
Surveillance cameras installed a few days ago in the block recorded the moment when the victim met the aggressor. They argued for a few minutes, and then he started hitting and kicking her. The scandal suddenly escalated, and the woman was set on fire.
Investigators have opened criminal proceedings for aggravated murder. The terrifying moments captured by surveillance cameras are the most important evidence in the investigation. The 33-year-old was caught by the police 4 hours after he committed the crime near his home, in the same district. He was upset because his aunt did not want to bequeath him the apartment. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.
