Russian Investigative Committee views mental instability of Felgengauer

MOSCOW. Oct 26 (Interfax) - The mental instability of Boris Grits accused of stabbing Tatyana Felgengauer, deputy chief editor of the Ekho Moskvy radio, is the main theory of this crime, Russian Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko said.

"The way Grits behaved during the detention and interrogation shows that he is troubled and mentally unstable, to say the least," Petrenko told Interfax on Friday.

"Detectives have no other tangible evidence to support any other theories at the moment," she said.

"Hence remarks by the lawyers, who allege any secret motive behind this crime or the participation of any third persons in it, are absolutely unfounded," Petrenko said

The mental condition of Grits "is being established by experts," she said.
