Woman Carrying Severed Head of Child Arrested at Moscow Metro Train Station
MOSCOW — A babysitter killed a child in her care and set fire to a Moscow apartment on Monday, according to law enforcement officials.
The Russian Investigative Committee — the country’s equivalent to the FBI — said in a statement that the woman had been a babysitter for a family with two children. She killed the younger child — who was three or four years old — lit a fire and left the building, it added.
Graphic footage of what allegedly followed flooded social networks. Images and video posted online showed a woman in traditional Muslim black head covering carrying what appeared to be a child’s severed head near a subway station.
The woman was sent for psychiatric tests as her actions indicated she may be mentally ill, officials said.
