These are two of
the versions police are considering in trying to solve the Dec. 16 crime that
is shocking the nation. Judge Volodymyr Trofimov, his wife Iryna,
their son Sergiy and his girlfriend Maryna Zoueva were all found dead, beheaded,
in the judge’s apartment. The corpse’s heads remained missing as of Dec. 17.

Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko said the judge’s son appeared to
have been decapitated while alive while the heads of the other victims were
severed after they had died.

The murders have also raised fears in the legal community. Last year
alone, a judge in Kyiv was murdered and a Rivne Oblast judge – the target of
threats – drowned under mysterious circumstances.
