Daria Shavelkina Biography Daria Shavelkina Wiki
Beautician throws friend’s baby to death from 13th floor.
A beautician Daria Shavelkina expect up to 20 years in prison for “killing” a friend of a friend from the 13th floor of a skyscraper in Russia.
The two-month-old baby fell 40 meters from a window in a residential tower in Moscow.
Russian state investigators say Daria Shavelkina, 30, is “jealous” of her friend Yaroslava Korolyova, 30, who had a loving husband and a happy family life.
Shavelkina, a cosmetic consultant at Clarins, was pregnant at the time and met the other woman at her home to pick up used baby clothes.
When Yaroslava turned around, the beautician suddenly grabbed the girl and threw her out the window.
There had been no arguments between friends before the accident.
The tragic mother ran down the stairs, but her baby was still on a hard surface in the yard after landing, eyewitnesses said.
Paramedics pronounced the boy dead.
The mother of three was “in shock” and needed urgent medical attention.
Shavelkina was arrested and told police she “heard voices in her head” and ordered her to throw the child to death, claiming she was mentally ill.
Russian psychiatric experts from the Serbsky Institute examined her and found that she was “faking” schizophrenia in order to evade responsibility for the murder, the investigative committee said.
As a result, she is tried for the murder of a minor and faces a prison sentence of up to 20 years if convicted.
Spokeswoman Julia Ivanova said, “A thorough investigation was carried out at the Serbsky Institute.
“They found no evidence (of mental illness).
“According to experts, the woman simulated the disease.”
Shavelkina gave birth to her son in police custody.
