Moscow, Aug 30 (IANS/RIA Novosti) An 82-year-old woman has been jailed in Russia’s Siberia region for murdering a fellow villager in a fit of rage, investigators said.
Maria Annikova killed the unnamed victim with several axe blows to the head earlier this year. It was not known what triggered the dispute.
