Oleg Belov admitted to murdering his entire family during a ten-minute rage that began because his six-year-old had got what he termed a ‘parrot’ haircut.
Father killed his mother, pregnant wife, 6 children after an argument about his son’s haircut
A father told a court that he murdered his mother, pregnant wife, six children and following an argument about his son’s haircut.
He told the court in Russia that his wife Yulia, 32, wanted to divorce him and then cut his son’s hair in a way he didn’t like.
‘She cut him like a parrot,’ Belov said.
‘I asked her, “Are you kidding or what?”
‘I tried to grab the hair clipper and a fight broke out.’
Belov said he hit his wife twice before she ran for help. He followed her and killed her with an axe before turning on the children.
He added: 'The eldest daughter Alena, seven, rushed to her mother's body. But Belov grabbed her by the hair and stabbed her at least seven times with a knife.
'Then he killed his second daughter, five-year-old Sonia, his son, three-year-old Nikifor, then two-year-old Ilya.
Then he took his one-year-old daughter Daria, put her onto a bed and stabbed her.
'After killing everyone in the room, he went to the bathroom where six-year-old Fyodor was hiding and stabbed him at least four times.'
Next he went to the village where his mother Zinaida Belova, 73, lived, telling her, 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry', before stabbing her 21 times. Daily Mail reported.
He was caught a week after the murders because his mother-in-law Valentina Zaitseva, 69, told police she could not contact her daughter and grandchildren.
Belov faces life imprisonment after confessing to the mass murder of his family.
