Former footballer found guilty of beating wife to death

21 January 2016, 19:04

Moscow — A former Zenit St. Petersburg player has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after being found guilty of beating his wife to death.

The federal investigative committee says Vladimir Dolgopolov was found guilty of "intentionally causing severe damage to health, leading to the death of the victim."

The committee, Russia's main investigative agency, said Dolgopolov attacked his wife "during a domestic dispute" at an apartment in St. Petersburg.

Dolgopolov played for Zenit as a defender in the 1980s and 1990s, winning a Soviet league title and playing in European club competitions. He also played for Dynamo Moscow.

Investigators say Dolgopolov will serve his sentence in a strict penal colony.
