44-year-old man who stabbed an acquaintance to death in Bukhara was sentenced to 13 years in prison


A 44-year-old man was sentenced to 13 years in prison for fatally stabbing an acquaintance in Kogon, Bukhara region, according to the Supreme Court's press service.
A previously convicted resident of the "Zirabod" neighborhood in Kogon City blamed his acquaintance for his personal problems and the collapse of his marriage, leading him to seek revenge.
In the early hours of January 27, at 2:30 a.m., he retrieved a kitchen knife from his apartment and went to his friend's residence. After climbing over the wall and entering the courtyard, he assaulted his acquaintance, first striking her in the face and then stabbing her in the chest. Despite the victim's attempts to resist, he continued to stab her multiple times, ultimately killing her.
During the trial, the defendant confessed that over the years, he and the victim had several falling-outs and disagreements, which he believed contributed to the end of his marriage. This led him to plan the murder of his acquaintance.
The accused was found guilty of intentional murder under Article 97 of the Criminal Code and received a 13-year prison sentence.
It is worth noting that earlier in the Shovot district of the Khorezm region, a man who killed his wife with an ax after accusing her of witchcraft was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
