"DNA test results: the DNA of the tissues found on the victim’s body matches the suspects’ one," Abroskin told a briefing on Wednesday.
According to him, the experts carried out about 70 examinations. Abroskin added that a number of items, including knives, were found in the river while preliminary findings indicate that one of the items could possibly be used as a murder weapon.
Speaking about searches in the suspect's house, the criminal police chief said: "We have seized some clothes with visible spots that shall be examined."
He believes that Nozdrovska’s murder was not premediated, but was consequence of a conjuncture.
Abroskin considers it inappropriate to assume that the age and physical condition of the suspect would prevent him from committing a crime noting that he is a physically fit person.
The law enforcer did not disclose the exact number of stab wounds inflicted on the victim having only mentioned that there were more than 10 of them.
Dwelling on his conversation with the suspect, Abroskin said that Rossoshanskyi fully acknowledged his guilt, gave consent for a crime re-enactment, showed the murder scene, and how exactly the injuries were inflicted. "He admits his guilt but shows no remorse of the crime he committed," the police official said. He added that the suspect disclosed the details of the murder at the scene during the crime re-enactment.
"He told me his life story, why it happened. He said that his son actually hit and killed the victim’s sister by a car in 2015," Abroskin stressed.
The law enforcer said citing the suspect that his son did not flee the scene, participated in all investigative actions, and paid material compensation to the husband and son of the victim.
"He expected that he would avoid serving a real prison term," Abroskin said.
On Jan. 1, 2018, journalist Volodymyr Tymofiichuk reported the body of Nozdrovska who went missing two days earlier found in the river on the outskirts of Demydiv village in the Vyshhorod district.
The police later confirmed that Nozdrovska was murdered. For two years the victim had sought punishment for a resident of Demydiv village Dmytro Rossoshanskyi charged with committing hit-and-run under influence in which Nozdrovska’s sister Svitlana Sapatynska was killed. Rossoshanskyi’s uncle chaired Vyshgorod district court at that time.
Obukhiv court sentenced Rossoshanskyi to seven years in prison following the trial that lasted more than two years. Rossoshanskyi’s lawyers nearly managed to set the criminal free under amnesty at the hearing in Kyiv-based Court of Appeals on Dec. 27. The appellate court ruled the court of first instance to review the case and left Rossoshanskyi in custody for 60 days.
On Jan. 2, Nozdrovska’s relatives and friends as well as activists and concerned people held a rally outside the building of the National Police Main Directorate in charge of Kyiv and the Kyiv region demanding to find those involved in the high profile murder.
On Jan. 8, the law enforcers said they had detained a suspect in Nozdrovska’s murder - the father of Dmytro Rossoshanskyi.
On Jan. 9, the court placed Rossoshanskyi into pre-trial custody for 60 days without the right to post a bail.
