This was reported by Fontanka. The 26-year-old fashion model and her 28-year-old partner, who live in the Moscow region, came to St. Petersburg to spend the weekend. On the evening of November 28, Popov brought a group of acquaintances to a rented apartment on Gagarinskaya Street, which the couple rented, and in front of Sudakova he began to flirt with another girl. There was a conflict.
After the friends left, Sudakova, according to her confession, went to calm down in the kitchen, preparing dinner, but Popov went after her and began to beat. The fashion model was forced to defend herself, she had a knife in her hands - the only blow fell right in the heart.
Sudakova herself called an ambulance, Popov was taken to the Janelidze Research Institute of Emergency Medicine, where he died the next day. Now Sudakova faces charges under Article 4 of Art. 111 " Intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm , resulting in the death of the victim by negligence", the maximum term for which is 15 years in prison.
However, the investigation has yet to sort out all the circumstances of this difficult case. According to rumors, conflicts like this occurred in the family on a regular basis: Popov cheated on his girlfriend and beat her, which she often complained to acquaintances.
Lilia Sudakova starred as a photo model for Vogue and other glossy magazines, and in the future she planned to develop a career as an artist.
